Infrastructure Development

Overview

There is a challenge in the Southeast and in certain other parts of America: Infrastructure is aging – and in some cases deteriorating – as populations are growing. This challenge puts public health and safety at risk, limits economic growth, and squeezes state and federal budgets.

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, as well as private sector clients, on structuring, financing and operating a variety of public-private partnerships.

In the past decade, Parker Poe participated in the financing and development of more than $4 billion in infrastructure development projects overall. Our team combines real estate, corporate, public finance, regulatory, construction and governmental policy attorneys, and it has decades of combined experience financing and developing large-scale infrastructure projects. We are not satisfied unless our clients achieve the highest level of financial return and public benefit on their investments.
