Infrastructure/Public Private Partnership
Extensive experience in infrastructure to guide our clients in taking advantage of developments in public-private partnership projects in Japan
In recent years, the Japanese government has developed concrete policies to introduce the use of concessions for airports, water and sewage facilities, toll roads, and other types of infrastructure. As one of its economic growth policies, the Japanese government intends to open up the management of some existing infrastructure facilities and structures to the private sector to help their maintenance and operations in response to severe fiscal conditions of central and local governments, and to create new business opportunities.
Given the rapidly changing legal and business environments in this area, our lawyers regularly update our clients on legal, regulatory, and practical developments. With our comprehensive knowledge of the issues, laws, and regulations, and our extensive involvement in concession and traditional projects, we are able to advise industry participants in a wide range of matters and issues, including conducting legal due diligence relating to the acquisition of concession rights; bidding and contract negotiations; construction, operation, and maintenance of facilities; and financing and other aspects of infrastructure projects. We can quickly assemble an effective legal team for specific transactions.
We are also prepared to support infrastructure funds investing in infrastructure assets in Japan. Our extensive experience in infrastructure and related regulations allow us to assist our clients with extensive knowledge, insightful advice, and thorough and efficient legal due diligence on the target infrastructure.
