Large infrastructure projects require careful integration of technical, commercial and legal matters to ensure that strategic goals are achieved. A complex array of taxation, approvals, property and risk issues must be effectively integrated with the engineering and capital requirements of the projects.
Our infrastructure team advises clients across all major asset classes including the energy and natural resources, transport, logistics and government sectors. We assist principals, contractors, consultants, investors and financiers to achieve optimal project outcomes having regard to key issues and risks and the perspectives and requirements of all key stakeholders.
We provide proactive pathways to solutions. Through strategic thinking we ensure that our clients can confidently structure projects which can be successfully financed, developed and operated and deliver the desired outcomes across their full lifecycle.
