Sector expertise

We’ve got it covered

Whether it be health, education, water, roads, rail, carbon capture & storage, hydro, waste or wind, we have the experience and practical know-how to deal with any issues that you may encounter. We are also the only Scottish based firm with a first tier projects practice on the Scottish Government’s Major Projects Panel.

Beyond completion

Our advice does not stop at closing projects; we are increasingly involved in ongoing operational issues, such as variations, benchmarkings, refinancings, equity transfers, sub-contract issues, consents, disputes and other matters as projects evolve.

Procurement and public sector leaders

Recognised across the UK for advising contracting authorities on all aspects of public services, we also have significant experience in advising bidders on procurement issues, particularly on major infrastructure, PPP/NPD projects, health, education, transport and construction. We work with clients at the cutting edge of the (constantly changing) legal environment to understand the impact of procurement and public law obligations on infrastructure delivery.

Project finance

We have advised on PFI/PPP projects since their inception in the UK. Our market-leading project finance specialists, backed by our wider finance team, are adept at structuring limited and non-recourse funding packages and have been instrumental in applying these to the developing major projects delivery models. With both Scots and English Law expertise in this field, we are ideally placed and experienced to advise on project financing, re-financing and on operational issues across the UK.

MacRoberts is a market leader in the PPP/NPD sector; we are very well connected in the marketplace and have advised on projects worth in excess of £4 billion.

Infrastructure projects can be complex. Our team has the experience and expertise you need to ensure your project runs smoothly. Besides legal issues and differences in the law, commercial risks, procurement issues, political change and regulatory concerns can arise. Throughout the lifecycle of a project, you need a legal team that stays ahead of the curve.

We are recognised across the UK for advising contracting authorities on all aspects of public services.

We understand the fast-paced nature of the sector, how quickly new measures emerge and the impact of non-compliance. That’s why we stay up-to-date with all relevant sector information and seek to anticipate potential difficulties or challenges for our clients before they arise. We know that efficient project delivery isn’t just about having in-depth legal knowledge; you need the expertise of a team that has delivered time and time again, so you feel confident you can meet your goals, efficiently and effectively.
