Public-Private Partnerships (PPP) have increasingly become a common structure for the delivery of public infrastructure. PPP offer the opportunity for governments and nongovernmental bodies to achieve more efficient projects by sharing risks and responsibilities differently as compared to traditional procurement. These types of structures also can offer better protection against schedule and cost overruns, and give the private sector the chance to bring innovation to the design, construction, operation and maintenance of public infrastructure.
PPP arrangements tend to be long-term and therefore the parties involved need an accurate understanding, agreement and documentation of rights and obligations over the course of the project. All parties to a PPP agreement need experienced legal advisors to achieve workable agreements that serve all parties.
Dentons' lawyers have deep-rooted experience with PPPs. We have assisted public owners, concessionaires, lenders and contractors with all aspects of PPP arrangements across a broad range of infrastructure sectors. We have leading PPP lawyers in jurisdictions that have been most active in these partnerships, including those in the United Kingdom, Europe and Canada. Whether you are involved in transport or utility, roads or accommodation we have experienced lawyers who can assist you.

PPP projects have the potential to generate huge amounts of data. In the context of a tolled highway project, for instance, a PPP contract may require the private operator to collect, in real time, information regarding weather and traffic conditions, toll collections, vehicle types, license plate information, and power usage, to name but a few. Depending on the PPP contract, some or all of this information will end up in one or more reports that the private operator will be required to deliver to the public authority periodically. Read more
