Our infrastructure group brings together a broad range of specialists who work closely with our clients to help conceive and execute projects, creating value in that process.
Our work is increasingly international, with resources available from our UK and Singapore offices. This enables us to work on major UK and international projects, across Europe, the Middle East and North Africa, Asia Pacific and the United States. We can harness resources and expertise to suit our clients' requirements no matter where they are based.
Why are we different?
What sets us apart is that, as lawyers, we understand the underlying assets better. We have been there when projects have been planned and built, and we've advised on regulatory and asset management issues throughout the asset life cycle.
Our areas of expertise
waste and waste to energy
social infrastructure - including education, health and housing
energy - including wind, solar, and nuclear

Simplified CRC Energy Efficiency Scheme to stay put until 2016
DECC has undertaken a number of consultations on the CRC Energy Efficiency Scheme (CRC) since October 2010, looking at ways of reforming and simplifying it.
