Public-Private Partnerships (PPP)
Allen & Overy is the world’s leading provider of advice on infrastructure and, specifically, PPP-related infrastructure matters. We drafted the first PPP contracts, which have now been adopted as the industry norm in a number of jurisdictions.
We advise all participants on PPP transactions including governments, sponsors, funders, service providers and construction companies, across a wide variety of infrastructure sectors, including social infrastructure, defence, transportation, prisons, healthcare and rail.
This depth of experience of providing services to a number of stakeholders across a number of sectors, means that we have come across almost every possible situation involving PPP, outsourcing and privatisation-type transactions, enabling us to provide our clients with an efficient and cost-effective service.
