Major projects involving public buildings, public works, energy facilities, and private land development are complex and expensive undertakings. Technical complexity, regulatory processes, environmental considerations, political pressures, and fiscal constraints are but a few of the challenges faced by governments, private contractors, developers and investors engaged in such projects. Lawyers at Burns & Levinson understand these complexities and we work with our clients to navigate the legal hurdles and policy issues inherent in major projects.
Acting as project counsel to governments, financial institutions, investors, designs, and developers, we approach projects with a deeper understanding. Not only are Burns & Levinson lawyers experienced legal advisors but many have diverse backgrounds in government affairs, engineering, finance, urban planning, and sustainability that provides us with a broader and more strategic perspective. We are active in local, regional, and national industry organizations actively working on policy issues impacting large capital projects and infrastructure programs and we bring that experience to bear for our clients.
The Projects and Infrastructure lawyers are ready to advise clients on legal matters from the outset of the project—beginning with assessment of alternative public and private funding sources through environmental permitting and selection of the appropriate project delivery method to create the optimal risk allocation for all stakeholders. We are there to act as advisors throughout project planning delivery, commissioning, and long-term operations and maintenance to ensure our clients visions and business goals are realized.
