Infrastructure & Mobility

Infrastructure & mobility investment and development is a top priority for governments globally.

While rapid urbanization is putting pressure on emerging markets in serious need of new infrastructure, developed economies are facing the inadequacy of existing infrastructure due to aging assets and sustained underinvestment.

Indeed, as the rapid pace of globalization continues, infrastructure is at the centre of attention, as a result of pressing need for infrastructure to be replaced, upgraded or built, in various sectors and both in developed and emerging markets.

Lastly, infrastructure is getting smarter, and technology is becoming a more integral part of built assets. We believe both sectors need to further engage with each other to drive a new era of Infratech and take full advantage of this revolution.

With an extensive domestic and international experience in the infrastructure and mobility sectors, our team provides in-depth strategic legal expertise throughout the entire project life-cycle, notably supporting our clients with project acquisition and operational legal structuring.

For decades, our team has been involved in the most relevant project financed transactions carried out in Portugal, with a vast experience in French and Portuguese-speaking African countries, and in Timor-Leste, notably real and shadow toll road concession deals and the more innovative availability based PPP projects with a traffic risk component. VdA has been involved in the reform of sector-specific legislation, including in the transportation and ports’ sectors.
