Keeping complex infrastructure and large-scale construction projects on track requires a deep understanding of how and where problems happen, anticipating where they may arise, and resolving them long before they ever occur. As a top tier law firm with offices in Boston, New York, Paris and Washington, D.C., Foley Hoag has a broad and deep understanding of the legal issues surrounding major infrastructure projects and the complex interplay between private and public sector concerns. We know and have worked with the people involved. For decades, Foley Hoag lawyers have helped clients complete numerous transportation, infrastructure and construction projects, ranging from airport terminals, telecommunication corridors and complex urban redevelopments to multi-site school renovations, railroad and transit line extensions and roadway projects.
Our Transportation, Infrastructure and Construction practice provides clients with strategic advice on complying with the full array of regulatory, planning and land use requirements. We work with top engineering and design teams to ensure that permitting never impedes a program’s progress. Our lawyers have drafted project-specific special legislation and complex land disposition agreements, designed large scale procurements, written and negotiated construction and design contracts, negotiated land purchases and ground leases, secured public-private partnership based infrastructure financing, and advised on eminent domain takings. When necessary, we have successfully represented our clients in legal disputes across a range of forums, including dispute resolution boards, United States courts, international arbitration panels, administrative bodies and mediators.
