Bringing innovative legal advice to the infrastructure sector in the areas of international construction, development, M&A and operational support.
It is of vital importance to get the deal structured appropriately from the beginning with the proper risk mitigation.
A lot can happen during the construction phase with stakeholders having conflicting interests. That's why its critical to identify the risks and who is responsible for schedule and cost associated with the risks.
After the infrastructure project is generating revenue, the goal is to maximize profits and minimize downtime for the owner.
Often times equity participants need to come in before construction to help fund construction. Or, sometimes developers/owners desire to buy or sell an infrastructure project. Allocating exposure for both the known or unknown variables will often be the determinative factor as to whether such transaction is a profitable one.
