Secondary Markets lawyers

Our PFI/PPP Secondary Markets Infrastructure Team advises buyers and sellers, including sponsors and specialised infrastructure and pension funds, on single asset or portfolio transactions. Our team is led by M&A lawyers who specialise in infrastructure and who work alongside our specialist PFI/PPP projects and finance lawyers.

Having been embedded in this sector for over 10 years creating new acquisition structures, we understand your specific issues for a transaction and provide innovative solutions to address each one. These may range from issues relating to firestopping, to navigating lenders and authorities and obtaining consents and/or waivers for the transaction itself, or technical breaches of a project agreement.

As the PFI/PPP market expands internationally, the UK-based team works in partnership with international colleagues to advise clients on their international infrastructure portfolios.
