Our long history of financing public sector infrastructure gives us a deep understanding of the motivations behind the P3 model, as well as its benefits and pitfalls.
With one of the nation’s largest and most respected Public Finance practices, we know how to access municipal bond financing in P3 projects and how to address the myriad tax issues that arise in this context.
Our attorneys have extensive experience in the P3 space’s active sectors, including transportation (roads, bridges, tunnels and airports), water and waste-water, student housing and social infrastructure and solid waste. We stay abreast of the issues and challenges facing our clients in these sectors and actively engage in a wide range of industry groups, allowing us to propose innovative solutions to our clients’ issues on a real-time basis.
