Infrastructure & Projects Lawyers

Whether you are an operator, a manufacturer, a financial institution, an infrastructure fund or a public sector body, it is essential that you receive reliable legal advice for your infrastructure projects and their financing. Our intervention is based on extensive knowledge of the different business sectors concerned and on synergies between the offices from the CMS network. We can assist you in all areas relating to infrastructure, including transport, energy, healthc are, education, housing, the custodial sector, information technology and electronic communications, as well as water supply, sanitation and waste.

With over 20 associates, including 5 partners, we have the human resources, expertise and innovation you require to support you in setting up the appropriate funding and innovative contractual structuring for any type of infrastructure project, particularly in relation to contracts with public and private buyers, such as concessions, public-private partnerships, complex public contracts and contractual arrangements involving public property. We also assist our clients on the secondary market within the framework of proposed sales or acquisitions of shares in infrastructure projects.

With regard to international projects, our Infrastructure & Projects team is also supported by all member firms of the CMS network, who offer, in each jurisdiction, a full range of services for infrastructure projects.

The team "advises its clients on projects in the energy and infrastructure sector and specialises in transport and renewable energy issues. A wealth of experience in supporting public authorities and private sector clients with concessions, public procurement and tender procedures, with recognised activity in French-speaking Africa. Additional expertise in the mining and oil and gas sectors, with complementary skills in project financing."; Client testimonial: "Associates are very quick, responsive and technically reliable." - Chambers Europe 2015
