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.
