Overview

Keeping complex infrastructure and large-scale construction projects on track requires an understanding of how and where problems can and frequently do occur long before they happen. That is exactly the insight and experience the attorneys in Foley Hoag's Infrastructure & Construction Law Practice bring to private and public owners as they plan, finance and successfully complete their large-scale, high-profile infrastructure projects around the world.

As a top tier law firm with offices in Boston, New York, Paris and Washington, D.C., Foley Hoag has developed a broad and deep understanding of the legal issues surrounding major projects and the complex interplay between private and public sector concerns. We know and have worked with the people involved. We can help keep projects on schedule and within budget by avoiding the legal problems that can frequently bog complex projects down. For many decades, Foley Hoag lawyers within our Infrastructure & Construction Law Practice have worked with clients to complete a wide range of infrastructure and construction projects, including airport terminals, telecommunication corridors, complex urban redevelopment, multi-site school renovation programs, railroad and transit line extensions, and roadway project construction.

Our Infrastructure & Construction Law Practice provides clients with strategic advice on complying with the full array of regulatory, planning and land use requirements. Foley Hoag lawyers work with top engineering and design teams to ensure that permitting is always secured in order and 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, administered contracts, negotiated land purchases and ground leases, and advised on eminent domain takings. Finally, when necessary, we have successfully represented our clients in legal disputes that can arise in these areas. 

Let the attorneys at Foley Hoag help you navigate infrastructure and construction processes to get your projects moving and keep them on track.
