Providing clients with global airport industry insight


Airport infrastructure is a fundamental component of transport infrastructure, creating a platform for national and international air services, and playing an essential role in the growth of globalisation.

Projects involving essential infrastructure and combining public and private sector interests have complex elements. Our understanding and strong market knowledge stemming from working with clients on all sides of projects and transactions, allows us to appreciate these nuances.

For each transaction we provide a customised multi-disciplinary team of both market-leading airport specialists and regional experts, who have a long history of advising on the construction and financing of airports as well as projects, environment and planning, procurement, M&A transactions, privatisation, operating services agreements, airport technology projects, regulatory matters and dispute resolution. We are committed to working with our clients throughout a project’s lifecycle to meet our clients’ objectives.

Our airport experts have worked together for many years across all aspects of airport projects, representing all types of clients, including advising infrastructure owners and operators, institutional investors, airlines, airport sponsors, financiers, government authorities and contractors on the complexities and nuances of aviation projects, and related disputes.

This experience and knowledge of the intricacies of airport projects, and appreciation of the industry allows us to find innovative and commercially efficient outcomes for our clients.
