Projects & Infrastructure
The Projects Team act for major international sponsors, project companies, sub-contractors and lenders in relation to some of the most significant infrastructure, outsourcing and technology projects undertaken in the UK.
Our projects experience covers a range of sectors including Waste and Energy, Technology, Roads, Airports and Regeneration Schemes.
We understand that achieving value for money in purchasing legal services is a key consideration for any participant in a major project. Our policy of guaranteeing dedicated partner-led resource to each project together with our ability to offer genuine "regional" rates whilst maintaining a "City quality" service means we add value to every transaction.
