The infrastructure industry is being impacted by diverse developments.

Key trends include consideration of sustainability in developments aiming to reduce environmental impacts and promote energy efficiency, and to minimise pollution and waste. Advances in digitalisation have enabled improvements in efficiency and integration of smart systems. Changes in finance include the growth of PPP partnerships to finance and manage projects and risk. 

We draw on the wealth of our experience to support our clients to build, finance or acquire the most complex and critical projects and infrastructure assets, navigating complex legal, social and technological issues. Our integrated team of infrastructure experts from across our global network provide a seamless service. We act for sponsors, public sector clients, contractors, equity investors and debt financiers, and are familiar with the concerns and objectives of all participants. We help clients deliver their projects by providing holistic advice for the whole project lifecycle, including anticipating the issues that will arise on each project, providing structure around those issues so as to facilitate a smooth and rapid implementation, negotiating and documenting the project to tight timetables, and providing a full suite of contract management services after financial close.
