Infrastructure & Projects Lawyers

The infrastructure sector is one of the priorities for the Colombian Government. Local and foreign investors are actively participating, or are interested in participating, in ambitious infrastructure projects which include highways, railways and airports, among others.

To achieve this, private investors and Colombian Government agencies must overcome significant challenges associated with the application and interpretation of regulations regarding public procurement.

Challenges associated with prior consultation with communities, environmental licensing, land acquisition, and lack of clarity on the risks associated with the projects, raise questions about project "bankability".

CMS Rodriguez-Azuero has advised numerous clients investing in some of the most significant and sophisticated infrastructure projects in Colombia, has advised public and private clients on the structuring, design and implementation of infrastructure projects, as well as on participation in public and private tenders for infrastructure projects, with a strong expertise in risk analysis.
