Infrastructure and Transport
Allen & Overy’s Global Infrastructure Group comprises specialists based across our global network who regularly work together on multi-jurisdictional transactions. Our experience, gained from advising on some of the most high-profile and strategic infrastructure deals in the market, enables us to provide expert support to clients on complex transactions in a challenging economic and regulatory climate.
As governments continue to embark on infrastructure asset capital building and/or recycling programs and private participants seek to both exit and enter the asset class, we continue to see increasing opportunities for infrastructure investors. Our global reach, sector expertise and local knowledge ensure we can assist quickly in assessing and advising on transactions across the lifecycle of infrastructure assets.
We view infrastructure assets in the same way as our clients. We take a cross-disciplinary approach and provide the legal solutions needed on any infrastructure investment or activity. We cover the full asset life cycle from creation to acquisition, the raising of sponsor or debt capital to ongoing portfolio management, restructurings and asset sales, as well as exit strategies. Our experts are able to identify quickly any obstacles or risks to a deal and provide innovative commercial solutions. In addition, our team has been involved in many complex “market first” transactions, demonstrating extensive strength and depth.
