Brookfields Lawyers infrastructure team draws on the specialist skills of a number of our partners providing a highly experienced group with an integrated approach to our clients' infrastructure and other major projects.

Major projects require specialist services in a number of key legal areas, including:

  • Project structuring
  • Resource management
  • Property law, including compulsory acquisition processes
  • Procurement and tendering
  • Construction and other contracts
  • Finance
  • Dispute resolution

Brookfields' infrastructure team comprises experts in all such areas of the law who work together to achieve the clients' objectives. Drawing on their own work groups and others throughout the firm as required, the team provides 'fit‑for‑purpose' advice that is cost‑effective and practical. Our aim is to work with our clients in this area, not just for them - we immerse ourselves in all aspects of the project to ensure we have a full understanding of our clients' objectives and needs.

Brookfields has a strong track record of acting for public entities, developers, contractors, investors and lenders, owners and other consultants involved in major projects across a range of industries. We have been involved in roading projects, the development of townships, apartment developments, hotels, shopping malls, water and wastewater facilities, landfills and other utility projects.

We have strong relationships with other consultants working on such projects, including with environmental consultants, engineers, planners, architects, urban designers, and other lawyers. We are accustomed to working within teams of consultants to ensure a 'total' solution for our mutual clients. We have long‑established, reliable networks within local government and many Crown entities, which assists our clients navigating the often complex maze of environmental and development processes required for their projects.

Brookfields offers a multi‑disciplined approach, providing a seamless package of legal services required for infrastructure and other major projects. From the outset, we will work with our clients to achieve their objectives.
