over the years, we have been involved in the legal aspects of several construction projects. Our Infrastructure team played a key role in the public-private partnership arrangement for the pre-commissioning (construction) of a hospital in a South-South state, advising a private investor on its role in the transaction. Our reputation as industry experts is evidenced by our yearly contribution to the construction section of the internationally acclaimed publication ‘Getting the Deal Through’.
Other notable construction transactions we have been engaged in include advising a consortium of 19 French companies that won the bid to construct an aborted railway line on the $1 Billion (One Billion US Dollars) financing required to fund the project; advising on the financing of the $400 Million (Four Hundred Million US Dollars) required for a Gas Pipeline project; providing legal support to the winning bidder on the $101.1 million concession of the International Airport, Abuja. We advised the consortium comprising of six foreign and local partners through to the final stages of the transaction prior to the suspension of the concession plan.
We continue to play leading roles in the legal aspects of several construction projects. We were instrumental in the PPP between our client and a State Government being involved in the pre-commissioning (construction) aspects of a hospital as well as setting up a management team to operate the hospital. We are also working on three (3) other similar construction projects in the Healthcare Sector.
