Smoothing the way for complex transportation, infrastructure and large-scale construction projects
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. That is exactly the type of insight and experience our attorneys at Foley Hoag bring to private and public owners as they plan, finance and successfully complete their large scale and high profile projects around the world. For decades, we 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.
