Infrastructure & Projects

Marcia advises clients principally on projects involving the participation of the private sector in the development of infrastructure and services traditionally carried out by the public sector.

She has participated in the structuring and implementation of Public Private Partnerships, advising both public sector and private sector clients. She has had the opportunity to participate in projects of great importance due to their complexity, innovation and social content, acquiring vast experience in the entire project lifecycle, including defining the most adequate structure, advising on bidding procedures for the awarding of contracts, concessions, licences and permits, drafting and negotiation of the necessary legal documents for the financing of infrastructure projects, and providing ongoing legal counsel for projects already in operation.
