Construction and Infrastructure

Nation building through infrastructure development has been one of the key practice areas of the Firm for many years.  The Firm advised and represented the winning bidder in the privatization of the West Zone of the Metropolitan Waterworks and Sewerage System (MWSS).  For the North Luzon Expressway (NLEX) and Toll Road Project, the Firm advised the proponent on the structuring and implementation of the project   prior to the enactment of the Build, Operate and Transfer (BOT) Law by way of a Joint Venture Agreement and later successfully negotiated a Toll Operations Agreement (TOA) with the government.  Advising the proponent on the financing of the NLEX project, it was later awarded   “The Project Finance Deal of the Year”.

 

Currently, the Firm is advising the Philippine Government in conjunction with foreign counsel for the 120 Billion Peso Public Private Partnership (PPP) bidding for the development and construction of the Laguna Lake Expressway Dike Project (LLEDP).
