Our urban infrastructure practice covers all aspects of public services including transportation, agriculture, water management, sewage management, telecommunications, industrial and commercial development, power, petroleum and natural gas, housing and other segments such as mining, disaster management services, and technology-related infrastructure.

Since these projects are primarily focused on public welfare, regulatory pressures are enormous.

We help entities navigate the complex maze of regulations, liaison with the government and other authorities, sail through the bidding process, provide compliance support, etc. Our experts have worked with industry stalwarts in a varied category of products and services that have enabled them to deliver seamless assistance with all sorts of legal, tax and compliance issues.

Thermal Energy

Strategic management of legal risks keeping in mind the commercial aspect of the business.

Coal contributes to around 86% of the thermal power and the rest is extracted from Lignite, Diesel and Gas. Growing demand, increasing industrial expansion, higher coal production, etc. have all contributed to the continued upsurge of the sector. The significant involvement of the private sector in India’s thermal power generation has necessitated financial viability, transparency, consistency and predictability in regulatory approaches, better infrastructure and adequate capacity building. However, entities functioning in the sector suffer from serious concerns including fuel security, suppressed demand projections, project cost overrun,
higher-end tariffs and policy paralysis.

We have assisted major energy companies, financial institutions, investment funds as well as governments and their agencies dealing in thermal energy generation and related services with their legal and compliance requirements. We understand the policy framework and provide strategic management of legal risks keeping in mind the commercial aspect of the business.

Healthcare & Education

Providing expert legal advice at every stage of the project.

The healthcare sector has witnessed a drastic transformation in the recent past. Growth of corporatized hospitals and chains, the emergence of PE firm-backed primary care providing “family physicians”, use of information technology to automate various hospital processes and protocols and to improve the quality of care etc. are all examples of this alteration. Similarly, the assimilation of education and technology has breached unknown boundaries. Edu-tech has transformed practical educational experience and ensured ubiquitous access. We can advise you on the best way to structure your entities so that you achieve the fine balance
between the need for financial returns to investors, compliance with Indian regulations and setting up an alluring ecosystem. We can also assist you with specific aspects of your strategy and plans- e.g. acquiring adequate real estate at the preferred location, obtaining approvals to construct, contracting with full-time and visiting staff.

Moreover, cities have expanded over the years; as a result, many pharmaceutical manufacturing plants that originally were in the outskirts of cities, now find themselves in a prime urban location. We advise and assist entities in finding suitable alternative locations and help them obtain the requisite approvals. In addition to advising on corporate, commercial and employment law related matters, we can assist in M&A and corporate restructuring work as well.
