Public-Private Project Development
MORE THAN 45 ATTORNEYS FROM SEVERAL KEY PRACTICE AREAS ARE SPECIFICALLY COMMITTED TO PROVIDING ADVICE AND COUNSEL TO PUBLIC AND PRIVATE ENTITIES INVOLVED IN THE DEVELOPMENT, FINANCING, CONSTRUCTION, OPERATION, MAINTENANCE, AND MANAGEMENT OF PUBLIC-PRIVATE PROJECTS.

Overview

From project inception to completion, Dorsey is well-equipped to address the full spectrum of legal issues encountered throughout the life cycle of P3 and infrastructure projects.

In an era of tight economic conditions, federal, state and local governments struggle to balance shrinking budgets and simultaneously drive economic growth and satisfy public demand for infrastructure and other public improvements. Meanwhile, private businesses and investors continue to seek opportunities for growth, expansion, and stable investment.

Dorsey provides comprehensive counsel to both public and private sector clients to create cooperative public-private partnerships. With a depth of knowledge and talent across multiple disciplines, Dorsey uses its resources to help clients navigate the legal, financial, business, and political complexities and nuances that move public-private infrastructure and development projects forward.

The Public-Private Project Development (P3D) Group is dedicated to serving clients who recognize the need to harness the unique strengths of both public and private sectors to create long-term solutions to the infrastructure and economic development issues that face communities today. With our guidance, Dorsey clients are able to structure public-private partnerships that leverage public authority and investment to attract private capital; and that leverage private investment, experience and expertise to reinvent the process of delivering and operating public assets.

Our P3D lawyers understand that well-designed and maintained infrastructure is a catalyst for economic development and that the public and private sectors are equally committed to the promotion of high-quality jobs, real estate and business development, and healthy communities. With an in-depth knowledge of the many development and finance techniques available to achieve these ends, our P3D lawyers can partner with you to help you create a synergistic public-private relationship that will produce results far greater than the sum of what could be achieved if each sector were working individually.

Whether you are a public entity looking to improve and expand infrastructure, promote economic development, increase your tax base, or create new jobs; or a private entity looking to employ your capital, experience and skill in the delivery of public assets, or intent on capitalizing on public incentives available to create jobs, finance projects, and grow your own business, Dorsey is prepared to help you compete and succeed in the new project development climate that rewards cooperation and applauds strategic risk allocation.

We are market leaders in providing assistance on large scale infrastructure projects and public-private partnerships in a wide range of sectors including health care, stadiums, transportation, mixed-use development and higher education.

Dorsey’s Public-Private Project Development (P3D) Group works closely with our Public Finance, Corporate, Project Development & Finance, Construction & Design, Real Estate, Regulatory Affairs and Legislative Groups to partner with public and private entities to revitalize urban areas, drive major economic development and create jobs through projects across multiple industries and jurisdictions. From project inception to completion, Dorsey is well-equipped to address the full spectrum of legal issues encountered throughout the life cycle of P3 and infrastructure projects.
