Poland A2 Autostrada

Hawkins represented the Transportation Ministry of the Republic of Poland as procurement and contract counsel in the development of the new A-2 tolled highway in southern Poland, which is now constructed and has been in successful operation for several years. We assisted in the strategic conceptualization of the project under a new national procurement law and in the preparation of the RFP and proposal review, and drafted and negotiated the design-build-finance-operate-maintain (P3) project agreement with the selected Polish-French-German concessionaire. After the contract was executed, our firm represented the Finance Ministry as a major lender of subordinate debt in the private financing of the project.
