Any major project requires a blend of technical and sector specific expertise combined with proven skills in project management. Projects may range from infrastructure public private partnerships through to major outsourcings of back office functions and business critical ICT procurements. Whatever their nature and sector, complex transactions have a natural tendency to protracted negotiations or dialogue and cost overruns. Budgets must be monitored and controlled while the process to contract close is properly planned and managed.
Our Projects lawyers are drawn from a multi-disciplinary team. Each brings sector specific experience of procurements, projects and funding across a range of transactions both within the public, private and third sectors. We are committed to managing the process as well as delivering pragmatic commercial advice to get your deal closed on time and to budget. You need to understand the process from its inception to its conclusion, appreciate what is required from you and at which point, and receive regular updates on the work and costs outstanding at any stage in order to manage your budgets. We can deliver all of this, together with a partner-led, personal service providing continuity and deal knowledge throughout.
