Ballard Spahr is at the forefront of today's new wave of public-private partnerships. Our exceptional strength in both public and project finance, the core of many P3 ventures, positions us as a leader in devising and implementing innovative P3 structures and financings across the nation.
Our public finance attorneys work with federal, state, and local governments, as well as private sector developers, investors, borrowers, and lenders in these projects:
- Transportation projects, including highways and toll roads, airport facilities, bridges, docks and seaports, and other transportation systems (including TIFIA financings, GARVEE bonds, and intermodal financings)
- Energy facilities
- Sports stadiums
- Convention centers
- Military and public housing
We have participated in P3 transactions as issuer's counsel, bond counsel, underwriter's counsel, borrower's counsel, credit enhancer counsel, and special tax counsel. Many of our attorneys have worked in government and have helped shape policy and shepherded public projects from concept to completion. As a result, we can anticipate and preempt potential roadblocks and drive projects forward.
Our team of public finance, transactional, real estate, environmental, governmental relations, and other attorneys work together on legislation, procurements, project contract negotiations, financing, land acquisition, permitting, construction contracts, environmental compliance, and many other aspects of these vital projects.
