Global social infrastructure lawyers

The global demand for modern and efficient infrastructure has never been greater. Investment in physical infrastructure for social purposes can deliver huge economic benefits to jurisdictions at the forefront of infrastructure development, as well as those at the beginning of their development journey.

Our team delivers dynamic and innovative structures to provide the foundations of vibrant social infrastructure projects and programs, built upon solid local legal advice coupled with international best practice.

We regularly help governments to develop PPP frameworks for procuring social infrastructure that meets international market standards, capable of attracting the most competitive project bids from major international corporates. We also advise investors and multilaterals on the financing, M&A and regulatory advice required for the delivery of social infrastructure assets.

Our diverse range of experience and extensive knowledge of current risk trends allows us to provide high-quality advice and apply innovative approaches in the social infrastructure sector. We are able to use this experience to help you shape and optimize your bid and investment strategies.
