Infrastructure & Projects

Russia

As a sponsor, lender or public sector organisation, you require legal advisors who can help you successfully handle complex infrastructure and project financing transactions. Whether you are involved in public works programmes or private sector financing in the areas of transport, health, education, waste, energy, defence, IT/telecoms, leisure, custodial & justice, ports, rail, roads or water, you will get the legal advice you need from us. With over 200 lawyers working in this sector, we can support your transaction in virtually any part of the world including the UK, Central and Eastern Europe, Western Europe, the Middle East, Turkey, India, Africa, Asia and the Americas.

We have delivered deals in the social, transportation and energy sectors with a combined value of many billions of euros, advising on public private partnerships, energy and renewables projects, including the largest offshore wind farms in Europe, infrastructure and utilities investments and a range of other development and corporate finance transactions. If you are an investor selling or buying an interest in a concession, a utility business or a PPP deal, you need expert guidance through the complex bidding process. Our lawyers have helped shape transactions across these sectors, ensuring quick deal completions on terms that optimise your returns. And if you are facing a potential dispute, we have the experts to support you through dispute resolution procedures or litigation action. Whatever your situation, we have the track record and the people to help.

Our local team has a wide experience in PPP and infrastructure projects as well as in construction.
