- Advising the Texas Department of Transportation on an $850 million toll lane concession project;
- Representing the Port Authority of Jamaica in the $600 million concession of the Kingston Container Terminal;
- Providing counsel to the Illinois Department of Transportation on the Illiana Corridor P3 project; and
