Bevan Brittan have been market makers in Private Finance Initiatives (PFI) and Public Private Partnerships (PPP) since its inception, advising on in excess of 800 plus PPP/PFI schemes, and as you would expect of a firm operating in that field for as long as we have, we have extensive experience.
We are recognized, by our peers, as one of the country's leading PPP/PFI practices, having advised clients for many years in relation to Health, Education, Leisure, Waste, Energy, Blue Light, Social Housing, Street Lighting, ICT and Road Maintenance projects.
Our specialist teams understand both bespoke and standard documentation, having been involved in the drafting of many standard form contracts and guidance. We understand policy, procurement and evaluation processes that help to support projects and can help you in responding to new market opportunities from a position of knowledge and not guesswork. Our extensive network, across multiple sectors, allows us to understand political, financial, local and service pressures, all of which inform the legal advice we provide.
As well as working to set up new projects, we also provide clients with advice in relation to their operational PFI contracts, covering every aspect of a projects life from comissioning, through operational delivery and handback, and in some cases early termination. We offer a true cradle to grave approach.
Unlike many firms, our dispute resolution teams are experts in PFI and PPP. They have a market reputation for managing the smooth resolution of disputes for clients which meet their objectives, and where disputes cannot be resolved, for strategic and tactical management of disputes through formal dispute resolution processes.
Bevan Brittan LLP’s construction group attracts praise for its ‘concise advice and pragmatic approach’; for some, it is the pre-eminent team for contentious PFI matters.
We are solutions focused. Our objective is always to provide a robust agreement that meets your strategic objectives, be that as part of the procurement of a new project, the management of an existing contract, or the resolution of a dispute.
We act for all parties in PPP/PFI contracts including central government, local authorities and NHS Trusts; equity investors, funders and major supply chain contractors.
Our specialist teams can help with:
ICT had a poor PFI track record but there are many long term outsourced and PPP type projects for back office services. We are currently advising councils how to review its options for termination of back office contracts, re-negotiating its contracts for back office services and terminating its ICT service contract.
