Government & Infrastructure

Finance raising, transaction, business structuring and major contract procurement advice

Major capital projects in the power, infrastructure, defence, social care and transport sectors require commercial and financial structuring to provide financiers with the confidence to invest/lend over the long term at optimal gearing levels.

Businesses in the public sector often need to adapt business models to changes arising from commercial, technology and policy drivers. Major government contracts have detailed incentive and performance mechanisms and require skilled advice in their commercial structuring, procurement and negotiation/renegotiation.
