This CLE webinar will guide counsel in structuring financing for various public-private partnership (PPP or P3) projects, including traditional and alternative financing, private activity and tax-exempt bonds, and governmental funds such as TIFIA. The panel will explain risk allocation measures to ensure successful financing and discuss recent legislative, regulatory and case law developments impacting PPPs and financing.


As governments confront increasing budget constraints, competing funding priorities, and crumbling infrastructure, P3s are a critical new tool for infrastructure development to consider. P3 deals involve complex risk-sharing arrangements and financing techniques, which require sophisticated transaction structures.

Counsel and advisers must carefully navigate and support their clients on the various types of P3 transactions, from brownfield asset monetizations to greenfield projects backed by availability payments and everything in between.

There are several key risks to allocate and manage for successful financing of P3 projects. Practitioners must leverage risk mitigation products and strategies for project sponsors, lenders and governments, including performance security packages, hedging and futures contracts, insurance, and similar products.

Listen as our authoritative panel of project finance practitioners discusses considerations for structuring financing for P3 projects, from traditional to alternative financing, private activity and tax-exempt bonds, and sources of government credit programs such as TIFIA. The panel will address risk allocation measures to protect return on investment as well as recent legislative, regulatory and case law developments that impact P3s.
