Eversheds’ leading global infrastructure group comprises an integrated team of more than 150 lawyers working across our international network of offices. The depth and breadth of our team enables us to provide public and private sector clients with market-leading advice from specialists in all areas.
We advise all levels of the supply chain including government sponsors, project companies, EPC and D&M contractors, multi-laterals, funders, banks and alternative lenders from project inception through to financial close and beyond. We advise a large number of clients and have acted on billion-dollar plus projects across many jurisdictions.
Public and private sector: a balanced portfolio
Our market-leading infrastructure practice is balanced between working for the private sector and for governments and agencies. This diverse experience base enables us to give the very best advice to our clients through extensive knowledge of current risk trends and innovative approaches. We have a deep understanding of how the public sector thinks and spend a good deal of our time evaluating bids on behalf of governments and other public bodies. This means that when we are on the bid side, we can use this experience to help our clients shape and optimise their strategy.

- are highly experienced at structuring complex projects in developed and emerging markets; and
