Projects & Infrastructure

The maintenance, development and expansion of infrastructure is critical to enhancing our quality of life and improving the health and economic growth of our communities. In Canada and around the world, governments are striving to deliver efficient infrastructure services while balancing their budgets and managing public debt.

Increasing concerns related to congested highways, overcrowded hospitals, deteriorating schools and inadequate water and sewage capacity fuel the need for improvements that are just as related to the relationships between private and public stakeholders as they are to the buildings and roads themselves.

In many jurisdictions, there's a growing appetite for innovative solutions that support public initiatives with private sector resources and expertise.

The Gowling WLG Projects & Infrastructure Group applies broad industry experience gained from active participation in a number of key infrastructure and public-private partnership (PPP) transactions and financings. Drawing on the expertise of our global network of legal professionals within complementary practice areas, we deliver strategic advice to a wide range of industry participants and stakeholders.

Members of our team provide sophisticated legal solutions on matters relating to power generation, transmission and distribution, pipelines, toll highways, airports, bridges and tunnels, residential, industrial and commercial real estate development, environmental clean-up and waste disposal projects, water and wastewater projects, large scale advanced technology systems, detention centres, and the development of health care facilities.

Working with project developers and managers, equity partners, financial institutions and governments, the Gowling WLG Projects & Infrastructure Group provides a suite of effective legal services, including:

  • Structuring
  • Negotiation and management of construction and project management agreements
