Large-scale infrastructure projects are by definition complex undertakings, with legal, commercial, technical and governmental issues at every turn.
Experience in all phases
Our lawyers have the know-how and experience to help you identify and manage these issues. From first proposal to funding, to groundbreaking, to completion and beyond, we provide timely, savvy advice on all aspects of your project, at every stage of development.
We have played key roles in the procurement and financing of a number of major transportation, energy, environmental and water initiatives.
Our multidisciplinary team provides clients in both the public and private sectors with a wide range of advisory services—legal, financial, regulatory, and legislative—to help bring large infrastructure projects of all kinds to fruition.
We advise on finance, business planning, and procurement issues, thoroughly evaluating all public and private options to determine the best solution for each component of the project.
We deal every day with governments at the federal, state, and local levels, and we can help you navigate the legislative and political challenges that can attend any matter where the public and private sectors converge. We also have particular experience in government bidding and contracting matters.
From highways and bridges to high-speed rail and subways, our team is experienced in all phases of domestic and international projects, including securing necessary constituency support, governmental approvals (including zoning, land use and environmental), procurement and financing.
Energy, environment and resources
Our energy team brings both skill and experience to the table in dealing with the complex and often overlapping environmental and energy regulations confronting every company that does business in the United States. Our primary focus is on companies, including global players, that develop, produce, market, acquire, transport and process energy resources.
Our water industry group has over 30 years' experience representing public water agencies and investor-owned utilities and developers on a wide range of financing, environmental law, water law and water utility law issues. Our experience includes public and private debt and equity offerings, utility mergers and acquisitions, obtaining state regulatory approvals associated with debt and equity issuances, and other commercial and financial transactions.
