Urban Infrastructure

Our urban infrastructure practice is in the forefront of the market and has been consistently ranked as Band 1 in this sector by multiple prominent international legal ranking agencies such as Chambers Asia-Pacific, ALB, and The Legal 500.

 

Our legal services extend to a broad spectrum of facilities, ranging from urban transport infrastructure such as high speed railways, subways, light rail transits, bridges, and transport hubs; urban sports and cultural public facilities such as stadiums, television stations, and museums; urban infrastructure for flood control and disaster prevention, including sponge cities, water conservancy facilities, and underground civil defense facilities; to ecological and environmental protection infrastructure such as waste treatment plants, wastewater treatment plants, and wetland parks; and to public infrastructure, including water, electricity, heat, and gas supply facilities, communication facilities, and underground utility tunnels.

 

On the service side, we have pioneered a whole-industry-chain, all-around, and full-process service mode that encompasses investment and financing model planning, transaction structuring, project financing, tendering and government procurement, contract review and negotiation, contract performance management, corporate governance, project M&As, and project IPOs. With this service mode, as well as reasonable division of labor and high synergy among different teams, our urban infrastructure practice has been sitting at the top of the market.

 

To assist in the vigorous development of China’s outbound investment business, we have worked side by side with Chinese investors, contractors, and suppliers in their “going out” ambitions. In this process, we have gained deep understanding of and rich experience in dealing with the market environment for and legal issues involved in investment, financing, and construction of overseas infrastructure. We are capable of acting as lead counsel and delivering the entire gamut of legal services efficiently and professionally to Chinese companies in their urban infrastructure projects in the Middle East, Asia, Africa, South America, North America, and Europe, especially in projects that require cross-jurisdictional cooperation.
