The infrastructure project life cycle is complex, multi-faceted and requires participation and input from a wide range of stakeholders with broad industry knowledge. Successful projects need more than advisers; they need industry experts who can seamlessly integrate into high performing project-teams.
We understand the practical demands and issues facing the different participants in infrastructure projects. As the New Zealand lawyers with the most experience working as participants in project alliances, we have lived and breathed those demands.
We collaborate with sponsors, developers, contractors and financiers at every stage of infrastructure development. We have a nation-wide team with expertise in all aspects of the project lifecycle, including optimal legal structures, project financing, regulatory consents (including some of New Zealand’s largest and most complex planning processes), procurement processes, concession agreements, tender documents, construction contracts and other project documents. Our expertise extends to the operations and maintenance stage as well as dispute management and resolution.
We have a particular focus on large transport, public and social infrastructure, telecommunications, energy, health and water projects.
