Completing public infrastructure projects on budget and on schedule takes a combination of diverse legal skills and credible government relations individuals at the federal, state and local levels. Our Infrastructure Development Group brings these elements together in one comprehensive and talented team.
We represent public agencies, utilities and private construction contractors, guiding them through the challenges facing infrastructure development. Our group includes attorneys with experience in state and federal funding, real estate transactions (including use of eminent domain), environmental review and permitting (federal, state and local), contracting for design, engineering, project management and construction, and utility contracting (including water transfers and alternative energy contracts). Our team includes policy advisors in Washington, DC, and in state capitals throughout the West.
The firm has a long history of helping government and the private sector collaborate on projects. Our attorneys have worked on some of the largest and most complex real estate deals in Colorado, and continue to provide legal counsel on significant public-private partnership deals. With a deep knowledge of city government, we routinely advise clients on zoning compliance, development issues, entitlements and governmental economic incentives for real estate development projects.
In addition, our team brings hands-on experience in federal, state and local government, both from public-sector service and in various lobbying capacities. Brownstein attorneys and policy consultants have served as general counsel for municipalities and for water, wastewater and community service, and in major capacities on congressional committees and with Capitol Hill leadership.
