Given that Infrastructure is the key stimulator for the growth of the Indian Economy and is highly capital-intensive in nature, the majority of the infrastructure projects are implemented in India through the PPP mode (Public-Private Partnership). This requires private participants (long-term Investors, consultants, Developers, EPC contractors and other stakeholders, etc.) to collaborate with the respective Governments and with each other in ways that insulate them from various risks. On the other hand, government agencies ensure that the Concession, Development, Operation and Maintenance agreements drawn up are bankable,
implementable and commercially viable.
We assist both government agencies and private sector players in evaluating their developmental/legal risks and ensuring that the underlying documentation is water-tight and addresses the stakeholders. We also advise private developers/stakeholders in preparing their bid responses as well as in creating the documentation necessary to raise capital (whether equity or debt financing). In the event of litigation (including arbitration), our team draws on experts in corporate, commercial, project finance and other domains as necessary to work with our litigation experts to protect our clients’ interests.
