Infrastructure lawyers

Infrastructure assets require special attention. Key to their operational success is the design, performance specification, completion and commissioning of each part. Understanding how engineering projects are structured and work is valued, measured, executed and delivered becomes critical.

Our construction infrastructure team handles the full range of infrastructure engineering and construction contracts, both domestic (ICE/ICC based) as well as internal (FIDIC based). Our infrastructure engineering disputes team is deft at helping manage issues as they arise, guiding our clients through the myriad of options, procedures and rules that are available and then acting and representing them to deliver the best solutions.

A core part of our global Infrastructure Team with significant depth of resources in multiple jurisdictions and practice areas, we understand our clients’ businesses; the opportunities ahead and obstacles to overcome.

Engineering and infrastructure contracts have to be framed and disputes understood in the context of the wider picture. This requires a holistic approach to project and contract procurement (public procurement as well as the panoply of PPP-BOT/DBO/DBFO options), planning, project finance, testing and commissioning as well as understanding and contributing to the entire post-completion lifecycle asset management strategy.
