Moroğlu Arseven provides full-scope support during infrastructure and PPP projects. The firm draws together expertise from a range of practice areas to develop coordinated and business-focused legal strategies for clients. These projects include key transport corridors and services, along with essential power, communications, waste or water utilities, along with facilities for social, public, or recreational purposes.
Infrastructure projects occur in a heavily regulated and highly scrutinised environment, with bureaucratic processes that require multi-dimensional legal support. Moroğlu Arseven’s strength in traditional deal structuring, administrative, concessions, regulatory licensing regimes, constitutional and financial matters enable us to provide full legal assistance to clients involved in Turkish infrastructure projects.
Moroğlu Arseven advises a full spectrum of project stakeholders and interested parties around the table: sponsors, investors, lenders, operators, engineers, general contractors, vendors, as well as government authorities.
The firm provides comprehensive support during all phases of due diligence, development, financing, acquisition and procurement during infrastructure projects, along with all elements of corporate finance, M&A, restructuring, workouts and other alternative funding or risk allocation issues. Our infrastructure clients benefit from the firm’s broad expertise in corporate and commercial law, real estate, construction, tax and project finance, procurement, government contracts, environment and public constitutional issues.
Moroğlu Arseven assists clients to navigate the complex and often bureaucratic tender procedures associated with securing and financing PPP contracts. Our clients are involved in a range of PPP models, such as Build-Operate, Build-Operate-Transfer, Transfer of Operational Rights, and Build-Lease. Due to the long-term nature of PPP contract arrangements, an accurate understanding of rights and responsibilities is particularly essential. Moroğlu Arseven supports clients to understand their rights and obligations, to develop innovative transaction and operational structures which also address competitive and industry pressures.
As the country continues to privatise more and more industries, our support to clients encompasses the full lifecycle of PPP transactions, from planning and financing through to construction, operation and exit. We work closely with clients to ensure appropriate and efficient allocation of investment risk, liabilities and revenue between the parties. Our support includes detailed due diligence activities, as well as consideration and assessment of compliance issues, financing vehicles, environmental impacts, procurement regimes, tax structures and dispute resolution mechanisms, among other relevant factors.
