Private-Public Partnership (PPP) / Infrastructure Projects

Infrastructure and PPP is one of the most rapidly developing practices in our company. The impetus for its emergence was the active development of infrastructure projects in St. Petersburg, which is considered a leading city in this sphere, both in law and in practice.

PPP in Russia is quite new, and its framework provides newfound advantages and enables beneficial developments, both for private business and for the state. An increasingly important aspect developing major infrastructural projects is project finance. Knowing that the city was successfully realizing PPP and infrastructure projects one after the other, we couldn"t help but start this new practice with a great enthusiasm.
