Infrastructure and Transport

We are Stibbe Infrastructure and Transport specialists

Across Europe, we advise a diverse range of government services and market players in all aspects of infrastructure and transport projects.

Infrastructure and Transport

As one of the leading infrastructure and transport law firms in the Benelux, we play a key role in virtually all the large development projects.

Through our multidisciplinary approach we handle tender procedures, public procurement, construction and engineering issues, tax law, planning and permits, financing, regulatory and environmental law.

Our specialists act on matters regarding national and international transport, such as the liberalisation of the EU transport market, development of airports and railroads – and advise contracting authorities, port authorities, aviation companies and transport companies on all aspects of their transport projects and concessions. Notably, we have specific expertise in drafting legislation for both regulators and government, and frequently assist private undertakings in efforts to modify or challenge (draft) legislation.

Furthermore, we have extensive experience in conducting complex lawsuits regarding national and international transport disputes, both before the national and international courts and in international arbitration.

On the menu to the right you will find a list of the specialisms we provide our clients including governments, leading developers, financiers, sponsors, contractors, engineers, consultants and insurance companies.
