Community development and infrastructure

Managing projects that are so extensive that they can be viewed as infrastructure or community development projects involves a great deal of legal responsibility and is often challenging even for a large organization. This type of project is almost always complex and requires knowledge and experience within many different legal practice areas. Furthermore, the projects often change over time, which imposes stringent demands on, and an ability to quickly adapt to, changed conditions.

We have extensive experience of infrastructure and community development projects from different perspectives and can assist in creating predictability in complex projects.  

Projects within community development or infrastructure may relate to a wide range of sectors and industries and relate to, for example, the construction of pure infrastructure (ports, road and rail networks, bridges and tunnels), but also other urban and social planning, such as the establishment and provision of care and communication services, etc.

We have unique industry knowledge and offer qualified legal services for all stages of an infrastructure and community development project. For instance, this may include advice in connection with an application for modification of an implementation plan in order to facilitate the transformation of industrial areas to residential properties, the negotiation of financing agreements in connection with infrastructure projects, early stage transactions to enable the financing of projects, issues concerning public financing, licensing issues, competition issues, tax matters or dispute resolution.

A successful community development project requires continuous co‑ordination with all actors involved. We understand and can anticipate the processes that govern these types of complex and long‑term projects and we have considerable experience in working together with public authorities and other third parties as well as in relation to co-ordinating and project managing large and complex contractual relationships.
