Shibolet is the leader in the field of large-scale, complex projects, infrastructure and energy. We are at the forefront of developing innovative and creative legal techniques for our clients in both domestic and international enterprises. The Projects, Infrastructure & Financing Practice team provides seamless service across multiple time zones and locations, applying our global experience, industry knowledge, and skills in all legal aspects related to the financing, development, construction, operation, management, and maintenance of major global and domestic projects, including on all major BOT & PFI projects and tenders in a range of sectors, such as:
- Power – conventional and renewable (including gas, cogeneration, combined-cycle, hydroelectric, biofuel, photovoltaic, etc.)
- Utilities (water purification, desalination, and sewage)
- Transportation (highways, intersections, heavy and light rails)
- Natural resources
Bringing together a multidisciplinary team of specialists, we have well-established relationships with local and international law firms, banks, and governments in all major international jurisdictions. In Israel, we regularly play a key role in domestic policy and implementation, in regard to both new constructions and the replacing or upgrading of aging infrastructure.
In recent years, we have represented several prominent clients in relation to infrastructure and energy projects. These cover all the major infrastructure projects, including representing the consortium selected to execute the (DBOT) light rail green line (J-NET) in Jerusalem and the contractor chosen to supply the DB green line tunneling and three underground stations in Tel Aviv. Other notable recent projects include large power plants, resources such as gas and oil, renewables, and cogeneration initiatives. Our expensive legal experience gives us a very broad perspective, which assists in all negotiation phases, risk analysis, and problem-solving throughout all stages of any project.
