News and Recent Developments
Periodically we like to update our clients on our latest deals and news. In doing this, we hope you gain a broader understanding of our global capabilities in the projects and infrastructure sectors.
Chambers USA 2012 rankings were recently published and we are pleased to have retained our top-tier ranking for our PPP practice. Sources say, “[t]hey’ve got a lot of resources and are excellent” and “[t]hey set themselves apart from the rest, acting on all sides of the table.” Barry Machlin, Co-Chair of Global Projects, and Infrastructure partner John Schmidt both ranked in the top tier of lawyers for nationwide Projects and PPP respectively.
Most recently, we were named the Infrastructure/Energy Team of the Year at the Lawyer Awards 2012 for our work to develop a legal framework to encourage international investment in the mining industry in Afghanistan. Additionally, Rob Goldberg, a partner in our Global Projects Group, has been named a “rising star” by Law360. He was one of only five lawyers to be recognized in the project finance space.
We are also particularly pleased to announce our appointment to act in six highway projects for the Texas Department of Transportation. You will find additional information about these and other recent projects in the full report.
We hope you find this update of interest.
