Governments throughout the world now realise that spending money in a manner that produces efficient outcomes is more important than ever.
Whether we are working on transactions in the West, the East, the developed world or the developing world, whether acting for governments or sponsors, it is absolutely clear that value for money is critical.
Allen & Overy has a long history of advising on projects in the social infrastructure sector, particularly schools, universities, hospitals, social accommodation, prisons, stadia and sporting facilities. We are pioneers of the public-private partnerships/private finance initiatives market in these sectors in the UK and Europe and are at the forefront of rolling out this model in other jurisdictions.
We have received numerous awards for project finance transactions in the social infrastructure sector working on numerous 'market firsts'.
Our leading Social Infrastructure group's expertise extends to the acquisitions of social infrastructure assets and companies, privatisations, structuring and establishing funds to invest in social infrastructure, advising on partnership models, ownership arrangements and unit trusts, negotiating appropriate contractual provisions for required agreements (whether agreements with the government or supply chain members).
