Public-Private Partnerships (P3) and Redevelopment

Spencer Fane attorneys coordinate the efforts of governmental entities, investors, and developers, helping to secure funding and provide direction in the creation and advancement of successful development and redevelopment projects involving the public and private sectors.

We work to practically and legally bring together all parties through our extensive experience with international, national, regional, and local public-private partnerships that provide infrastructure updates and other long-lasting development improvements. We have close contacts with municipalities, developers, political subdivisions, and special districts throughout the firm’s footprint that allow us to bring stakeholders together on P3 projects. Our attorneys recognize the unique goals of each involved entity, and we have extensive experience with the operations of special districts, making our involvement beneficial to the success of the project.

We have experience acting as lead, local, or special counsel on all aspects of P3 projects. We handle RFQ, RFP, subcontractor relationships, entity organization, holding and finance company interactions, construction, concession agreements, Transportation Infrastructure Finance and Innovation Act (TIFIA) agreements, operation, management, and finance of public infrastructure facilities and projects. Our work spans a variety of projects, including hotel and resort developments, highways, toll roads, airports, utilities, ports, schools, and hospitals.

Our attorneys have an intimate understanding of the unique funding mechanisms that are key to P3 Projects. We are up to date on the ever-changing laws and regulations governing them and can leverage the breadth of the firm’s practice to handle other mitigating factors, providing efficient and cost-effective guidance to project sponsors, lenders, investors, contractors, subcontractors, operators, and governmental entities.
