The firm is a leader in representing government and private sector developers, investors, and lenders in innovative public-private projects that range from transportation systems and energy facilities to military and public housing.


Our attorneys understand the political, financial, legal, and practical considerations involved in the acquisition, development, construction, operation, and disposition of publicly owned assets. We understand and respect issues of public trust, transparency, and accountability and have the experience to anticipate and preempt potential roadblocks.

Putting Relevant Experience to Work

Many of our attorneys have worked in government. Because we have helped shape policy and shepherd public projects from concept to completion, we have the skills to navigate the intersection of government and industry and know the mechanics to drive forward a successful public-private partnership.

A Solid Foundation in Finance

Municipal finance and project finance are at the core of many P3 projects. In the past two decades, our attorneys have participated in the issuance of more than $190 billion of tax-exempt obligations in 49 states, the District of Columbia, and three territories. Our project finance attorneys have worked on a wide variety of infrastructure, transportation, and energy projects representing private developers, governments and other users, and financiers.
