Infrastructure

Landmark infrastructure projects take foresight and discipline, along with the will – and the creativity – to find new ways to address challenging obstacles. That’s what our team delivers – time and again.

On significant public-private partnership (PPP) projects across Canada and the U.S., we bring the necessary skills and experience to guide complex agreements successfully to financial close. From water supply and treatment projects in the U.S. to nearly all of Canada’s light rail transit ventures, we have unparalleled experience delivering PPP firsts. Public and private sector clients count on us to help them keep projects on track, meet deadlines and stay within budget.

Cutting edge public infrastructure deals call for sophisticated expertise across a range of legal disciplines. We build the ideal team for each project, drawing on our deep talent in corporate, capital markets, project finance, commercial real estate, environmental, tax, and mergers and acquisitions.

Our lawyers deftly handle the unique issues that arise when governments and private sector investors join forces, navigating the complexities of various partnership structures and financing platforms. On virtually every type of project – from bridges to schools – we help achieve outstanding results for all stakeholders.
