We know that for any transaction, the relationship between what the procuring party wants to achieve and how it is procured is critical, just as the relationship between a bidder’s aim to craft a winning but profitable offer and how it is bid is also critical. We always make it an early objective to work with clients to help them select the optimal procurement or bid strategy.
Our Transaction team provides leadership and support to clients in the road, public transport and freight sectors procuring or disposing of assets and operations, funding such transactions, bidding for capital investments including PPPs and operating contracts and negotiating changes in existing contractual agreements. The team is expert in the detail of due diligence, whether supporting clients with the design of concessions, contracts and performance and incentive regimes, or with preparing competitive, deliverable and commercially robust bid proposals.
As with all our teams we know that successful transactions require experts who bridge the gap between the financial/legal teams and technical experts. With our transaction experience working for companies and project sponsors we help give assurance to funders, bidders and promoters alike that at the end of the process they will attain what they set out to achieve.
