There will be considerable challenges over the next decade as governments and the private sector seek to plan, procure and deliver the projects that the Asia Pacific needs to boost productivity and ensure sustainable growth. Meeting this challenge will require long-term planning, focus, flexibility in delivery methods and funding options, excellent risk management skills, expert project management and experienced advisers.
As leading lawyers in the infrastructure sector, our infrastructure team is respected and engaged on a recurring basis by government, constructors, developers, operators, debt providers and investors alike. We operate across all sectors, including economic infrastructure (transport, communications, power, water and other utilities), municipal facilities and social infrastructure (health, education, housing and justice).
Our key point of difference is our ability to provide a tailored and cross-disciplinary team for the lifecycle of your infrastructure project – from strategic input through to project delivery and dispute resolution. We seamlessly integrate our specialists from areas such as real estate, planning, environment, construction, tax, finance, competition and regulatory, insurance and dispute resolution to manage your risk and achieve the best outcome for your project.
We also have a strong track record in advising on high profile, commercially complex and strategically important public private partnership (PPP) projects. PPPs continue to be recognised as a successful method of delivering infrastructure and we have been at the forefront of the development of Australia's PPP sector and are now exporting those skills into Asia. Our on-the-ground lawyers in Hong Kong, Beijing and Shanghai work on infrastructure projects in many Asian jurisdictions, giving us an acute understanding of the local challenges and opportunities.
