"Infrastructure networks enable people, goods, energy, information, water, and waste to move efficiently. … The extent, capacity, and quality of these networks has a direct bearing on the economy, … the environment, and the quality of life of everyone. ..." HM Treasury and Infrastructure UK, Strategy for National Infrastructure, March 2010

Hogan Lovells' focus on the infrastructure industry is second to none. From fundraising; through initial project development and financing; to trading in infrastructure assets, mergers and acquisitions, and dispute resolution, our practice is one of the largest and most diverse in the world.
