Both in Canada and abroad, infrastructure is seen as an essential element that helps define our standard of living and the state of our economy. Governments are increasingly faced with calls to balance budgets, pay down public debt and, in some cases, even implement austerity measures as they struggle to maintain existing infrastructure obligations, let alone deliver on the promises of new ones.
From deteriorating roads and bridges to overcrowded hospitals and aging water treatment and power facilities, improvements to major infrastructure projects require experienced legal counsel with far-reaching expertise and a track record of success. Drawing on our highly-skilled, client-centric, multi‐disciplinary, one‐team approach, Gardiner Roberts’ Infrastructure team provides forward-thinking, strategic solutions to a wide range of complex infrastructure-related issues, providing actionable counsel who actively look to public and private sector partnerships to share the burden of responsibility - and the risk.
