A&O tops infrastructure list

20 September 2012 Allen & Overy has been named “easily the best infrastructure practice in the market” in the latest edition of the Legal 500.
The industry bible rated the law firm in the top tier of its infrastructure sector, along with Linklaters and Ashurst. Allen & Overy’s group head, David Lee, was praised for his “vast” knowledge of PPP.

Allen & Overy was also described as “one of the best in the field of PPPs”, and maintained its status in the top tier of the Legal 500’s PFI and PPP sector. It was joined by both Linklaters and Ashurst once again, as well as CMS Cameron McKenna.

In the second tier were Clifford Chance, Freshfields and Hogan Lovells, with the latter being noted for its role in closing the £500m Nottingham Express Transit phase two PFI scheme.

Meanwhile, the Legal 500 said Stephenson Harwood had “significantly bolstered its offering” with the hire of Jonathan Cripps and Rebecca Carter from Eversheds, and Pinsent Masons’s merger with McGrigors in May had “significantly strengthened the firm’s UK infrastructure capability”.
