Enormous amounts of time, money and effort go into infrastructure projects well before the physical aspects of a project begin. Expert legal advice is essential to giving project the best start and for ensuring an efficient and effective response to contingencies.

Gilbert + Tobin’s infrastructure team has a deep understanding of the commercial drivers and risks associated with infrastructure projects and transactions. We advise a wide range of developers, financiers, government and industry bodies on some of Australia’s largest and most difficult infrastructure transactions.

We recognise that infrastructure projects need a variety of different legal specialisations. Our approach is an integrated one in which we bring together a team with the necessary skills required to deliver the best results for our client.
