Public-Private Partnerships (P3) like the University of Miami Life Sciences Building are part of a growing trend of government entities joining with private industry. While these partnerships have many benefits–like helping resolve public infrastructure challenges and stimulating job growth - they are governed by special contractual arrangements that require sophisticated, experienced legal counsel.

Bilzin Sumberg has extensive experience in public-private projects, including rail and transit facilities, airports, marinas, sports facilities, convention centers, healthcare/life sciences facilities, educational institutions, water and sewer facilities, parking structures, and various infrastructure developments.
