Seyfarth Expands Construction Practice with P3 Lawyer in Washington, D.C.
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Seyfarth Shaw LLP announced today the arrival of partner Charles E. “Chuck” Wall to the Public-Private Partnerships (P3) group and Construction practice in Washington, D.C. Wall joins from Troutman Sanders LLP, where he was a partner in Richmond, Virginia.
Wall’s P3 practice focuses on advising project stakeholders in the financing, design, construction, operation and maintenance of large-scale public infrastructure development projects. These projects, many of which involve long-term concessions with construction valued in the billions, include airports, highways, bridges, tunnels, transit, water/wastewater systems and other facilities.
“Chuck is a recognized leader in the P3 field and has successfully guided some of the largest and most complex infrastructure projects in the U.S.,” said Bennett Greenberg, co-chair of Seyfarth’s Construction practice. “The number and size of P3 projects is increasing substantially each year, in both the transportation and social infrastructure sectors. Chuck significantly expands our team’s reach and P3 capabilities.”
In addition to his P3 and infrastructure development practices, Wall advises clients on a broad range of construction and corporate matters, including design-build and other construction-related contracts, joint venture agreements and teaming arrangements. He assists clients in navigating all forms of alternative project delivery, along with the myriad of issues that arise through procurement, project execution, O&M and beyond.
“Chuck is an exceptional talent and a tremendous addition to the D.C. office,” said Robert Bodansky, managing partner of Seyfarth’s Washington, D.C. office. “He strengthens our already robust Construction practice and greatly enhances our P3 transactional capabilities.”
Wall is a frequent speaker on P3 topics and serves in leadership roles within numerous industry organizations. He received his J.D. from the University of Richmond, where he was a member of the University of Richmond Law Review, and earned his B.B.A. from the College of William and Mary.
With over 35 lawyers, Seyfarth’s Construction practice represents clients in all phases of construction projects, from inception to completion, domestically and abroad. Seyfarth’s P3 group represents project sponsors, lenders, contractors, facility operators, and state and local government agencies in the unique finance, development, construction, operational and regulatory issues associated with P3 projects.
