PUBLIC PRIVATE PARTNERSHIP
Our lawyers have critical public procurement, public finance and project finance know-how and our experience encompasses the full range of public-private collaborations. Being a national law firm with a wide depth and breadth of experience and expertise, we can assist with all types of legal issues associated with a PPP project whether involving procurement laws, real estate, environmental regulation, or tax. We have the capability to represent either public or private parties in all types of infrastructure arrangements including: privatizations, public-private partnerships, concessions, leases and alternative public-private funding structures. We also have experience with diverse PPP models ranging from the short term to longer-term arrangements.
Our guidance extends from early development and construction planning, through PPP finance, project negotiation, and building. The firm has confronted the myriad issues impacting infrastructure development, including the practical, political and environmental challenges.
Some of our team members having worked with the Infrastructure Project Development Facility, for Public Private Partnership matters bring the unique blend of understanding of both the public and the private side. Moreover, having worked with banks for many years the firm also has a unique understanding of the financial institutions and their concerns.
Our work on PPP projects and many other transactions has developed a good working relationship with governmental PPP agencies and we have gained extensive knowledge of their practices and approaches to key issues, and of the public-policy environment in which they operate.
Major infrastructure projects require counsel with varied and in-depth expertise. Samdani & Qureshi’s Public-Private Partnerships (PPP)/Infrastructure Group has recent and ongoing involvement in some of the most challenging and innovative public infrastructure projects, and our extensive background makes the firm a leader, nationally in the areas of public-private partnerships, infrastructure development and finance.
