Infrastructure fundraising and investments are growing at unprecedented levels. As a leading legal advisor to private equity firms and other asset managers, Ropes & Gray is committed to guiding investors and companies that are active in this dynamic sector. We make it our mission to be full thought partners to our infrastructure clients, bringing deep business and legal experience as we help our clients navigate fundraising, mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures, financing, and other infrastructure sector transactions.

Sophisticated global sponsors and investors rely on Ropes & Gray. With more than 300 lawyers focused on asset management and 180 lawyers devoted to private equity, we are a firm built to serve private investors. Our industry strength is recognized: Chambers ranked Ropes & Gray Band 1 for “Private Equity: Fund Formation” and Law360 named us a 2023 “Private Equity Practice Group of the Year.” We have seen every side of the private investment industry and offer our unique commercial perspective to large and middle-market investments and private equity firms exploring alternative asset classes.

We advise on the most cutting-edge, sector-defining transactions. Among them, we advised on the largest primary fiber securitization offering in history for a public fiber-to-the-premises telecom company, the $3 billion recapitalization of North America’s leading network-neutral interconnection and hyperscale edge data center company, and the launch of Meketa Infrastructure Fund, an interval fund for individual investors. We have also guided institutional investors on their investments in hundreds of infrastructure-focused funds, as well as private equity sponsors raising dedicated infrastructure funds.

Our clients span the sector and the world. We advise private equity investors, including dedicated infrastructure funds, hedge funds, real estate funds, sovereign wealth funds and other institutional investors. We also work with operators and developers of infrastructure assets in renewable energy, energy transition and infrastructure services. This broad sector perspective informs our advice to clients.

We are a multidisciplinary team. Our cross-practice group of infrastructure lawyers is global, collaborative and diverse. With dedicated experts located in the United States, the United Kingdom and Asia, we are united by our commitment to helping clients succeed.
