A&O tops infrastructure list
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”.
