Public-Private Partnerships

Guiding Public and Private Entities to Expand Opportunity

​Projects backed by partnerships between the public and private sectors present unique challenges. That's true whether your project involves procurement laws, real estate, public finance, environmental regulation, governmental subsidies and incentives, or tax issues. Mintz attorneys have a practical and deep understanding of how government agencies work. We know their legislative and decision-making processes, political environments, financing tools, governing laws, political considerations, and public relations concerns. And we leverage our knowledge to effectively and efficiently assist with every detail of your project.

Our Approach

​Our team handles all of the issues facing both public and private parties in all types of infrastructure arrangements. We've worked on privatizations, public-private partnerships, concessions, leases, and alternative public-private funding structures. And we've confronted many issues impacting infrastructure development, including the practical, political, and environmental challenges involved. 

We understand what it takes for a private entity to structure and execute a project with governmental agencies and quasi-public authorities. Our attorneys know market and creative contract provisions, pressure and leverage points, negotiation techniques, and financing options. And we have excellent relationships at many agencies and authorities. We can guide you from project conception to completion.
