Private/Public Partnerships in today’s business climate cannot be overstated. It has become increasingly apparent that governments at the city, county and state level across the nation have ongoing revenue issues. Infrastructure costs continue to mount as revenues continue to drop. This creates an opportunity to forge private/public partnerships (P3) -- situations where private sector companies contract with governmental entities to fund and run specific projects. The attorneys and other professionals at Clark Hill have counseled clients on both sides of these partnerships, representing the interests of both the private and public sectors in a wide variety of situations.
