MacRoberts has been at the forefront of PFI and Project Finance since its inception and we are established as one of the leading firms in this field.
Our lawyers are drawn from all specialist areas of law required for the successful delivery of, and ongoing advice on, complex and major projects. These include project finance; construction and engineering; procurement; planning and environment; tax; property; competition and state aid; employment and pensions.
We are increasingly involved in ongoing operational issues, such as variations, benchmarking, refinancing, equity transfers, sub-contract issues, consents, disputes and other matters as the individual projects turn into businesses.
We are also involved in ongoing operational issues on a whole range of non PFI projects including infrastructure, transport, energy, outsourcing and construction and engineering projects.
We act for all industries in the private and public sector. In the private sector, our clients include bidding consortia, contractors, banks and other funders. For the public sector, our clients include those in the health, education, housing, waste and waste water sectors.
We combine cutting-edge market knowledge with a solutions-based, friendly approach which allows us to assist our clients to fulfil, and exceed, expectations.
We are currently ranked as a Top Tier firm in Projects by Legal 500.
