Infrastructure & Projects.


A successful major project requires a breadth and depth of experience from its legal team. Meredith Connell’s Infrastructure and Projects Group can draw together up to 60 lawyers for a project team and our world-class expertise spans every element of the types of major projects you want to bring to market. 

We’re different. We’re not clock-watchers or box tickers. We’re partners with business and deal-closers. At every stage of a project's life, we are focussed on creating value for our clients over the whole life of an asset. 


Our Infrastructure and Projects Group is not an old-style legal team made up of the same old generalists repackaged as something new.  It’s a hand-picked team of local and international experts brought together to deliver a fresh and innovative approach to client service on such projects.

Through the Infrastructure and Projects Group, we provide a one-stop, pragmatic response to our clients’ specific infrastructure and project development needs. The breadth of experience and expertise in the Group enables us to be involved in all aspects of a project, from procurement to completion and during the entire life cycle of the asset, providing invaluable assistance at every turn.

You’ll deal directly with the appropriate expert who can deliver what you need from conception through to funding, procurement, construction and into operation. 


Our Infrastructure and Projects Group comprises one of the country’s largest and most active construction practices (including one of New Zealand’s top experts in Public Private Partnerships), as well as the country's leading environmental and resource management team and a first-rate local and international corporate commercial and property practice.

And we bring Meredith Connell’s innate understanding of the regulatory and public law environment to our commercial instinct for getting the job done.
