PPPs, Concessions, Privatisations

Due to its very strong track record in the construction and public works and procurement sectors, the firm has also been involved in some of the few PPP tenders in Greece following the Law on Public Private Partnerships Contracts introduced in Greece by Law 3389/2005.

Our lawyers have also been involved in concession agreements related to major infrastructure projects and have indicatively advised one of the firm’s clients on several occasions in relation to two concession agreements of two of the biggest infrastructure projects in Greece.

Outside Greece, we have been advising private companies in respect of concessions (highways) and PPPs (electronic tolls for trucks, supply of vessels to the French marine to support overseas military presence) and public entities for the construction of energy efficient school buildings, the erection of rooftop solar installations and a pneumatic waste collection system under PPPs.

The firm has also advised clients in relation to concession agreements in the Balkans. In this respect, we have also collaborated with two other firms on a law reform project concerning concession contracts in the Former Yugoslavian Republic of Macedonia (FYROM). The project was carried out within the framework of the European Union Phare Programme entitled “Investment Options in the Energy Sector”.

Last but not least, the firm regularly advises clients in relation to the major privatization process and in particular, the public tenders already announced by the HRADF (Hellenic Republic Asset Development Fund) mainly in the energy, transport and real estate sectors.
