Infrastructure Development

Overview

Sound infrastructure rests at the foundation of every prosperous society. Without the basic physical components of modern infrastructure systems and their supporting organizational and operating frameworks, no nation can expect to harvest and employ their natural and human resources and man-made products and services to their full social, economic and cultural potential. Aging and deteriorating infrastructure across the United States has gained widespread attention in recent years, as public agencies have searched for solutions to update and modernize their infrastructure systems. Meanwhile, growing populations and communities demand expanded infrastructure and support systems to preserve public health and safety, ensure economic success and conserve sensitive ecosystems and depleting natural resources.

Infrastructure development ranks among the most important industries in which Parker Poe has developed a reputation for leadership and innovation. In the past decade, Parker Poe participated in the financing and development of over $4 billion of infrastructure development projects. Our team of real estate, corporate, public finance, regulatory, construction and governmental policy attorneys have decades of combined experience financing and developing large-scale infrastructure projects. And as public agencies have increasingly sought partnerships with the private sector to develop new infrastructure systems, Parker Poe has been at the forefront in counseling local, state and federal representatives and private sector clients on structuring, financing and operating a variety of public/private partnership initiatives. We are not satisfied unless our clients achieve the highest level of financial return and public benefit on their investments.
