Public-private partnerships infrastructure

Public-private partnerships (PPPs) provide the public sector with a fantastic mechanism for harnessing private sector expertise and capital. If implemented correctly, they can also build stronger state authorities with the capacity and capability to deliver a robust pipeline of complex infrastructure projects.

A number of jurisdictions have already demonstrated deep political determination and taken positive steps to put in place the necessary legal and economic mechanisms to attract investment. However, others are at the very beginning of their PPP journey. In all jurisdictions, even those with the most developed PPP systems, there is work to be done to modernize the approach.

Robust PPP frameworks and individual projects require assistance and experience across a number of areas including their legal, financial and technical aspects. At Eversheds Sutherland, we work collaboratively with local counsel and technical and financial consultancies to provide the best possible advice for our clients. We have excellent working relationships with many of the world’s leading consultancies and smaller niche organizations, which often contact us to bid and work with them on a variety of different transactions. Whatever your needs, Eversheds Sutherland is on hand to provide effective tailored advice.
