Infrastructure and Transport
Allen & Overy provides the infrastructure and transport sector with industry insight and imaginative legal advice
We view infrastructure and transport assets in the same way as our clients. Our approach combines disciplines and provides legal solutions to any infrastructure investment or activity across various sub-sectors. We cover the full asset life cycle from creation to acquisition, the raising of sponsor or debt capital to restructuring and ongoing portfolio management and asset sales. We work on major infrastructure project financings, mergers and acquisitions (public and private) relating to brownfield infrastructure assets, securitisations, asset financings, refinancings, regulatory matters, infrastructure funds, arbitration and litigation and construction projects.
We are the leading global provider of legal services to the infrastructure and transport sector. Infrastructure Investor named us 'Global Infrastructure Firm of the Year' and we were Infrastructure Journal’s 'Global Legal Adviser of the Year'.
