Infrastructure, Projects & Energy

We provide strategic legal advice for the whole lifecycle infrastructure projects, from planning to formation, through to the build and operate phases and sale.

In the initial phases, we advise on infrastructure ownership structures including consortium formation, joint venture or limited partnership establishment, equity investment, and inter-shareholder arrangements. We’re fully conversant with procurement methods used internationally, from build only and design-build procurement, through to the various whole-of-life outsourcing formats, including significant experience with public-private partnerships.

During the operational life of projects, we advise on operations and maintenance arrangements, supply of services (including regulated access), regulatory proceedings and changes to project structures and sales.

In addition, our team has a long history of advising on all aspects of the energy sector including upstream oil & gas, electricity generation (including construction), electricity market operation, transmission and distribution, and regulatory requirements.

Our lawyers can work with you across all categories of infrastructure projects, most notably on strategic high-value projects. We excel at quickly understanding the requirements of your project, integrating with the project team, and delivering pragmatic, superior advice in a timely manner.
