Rod Munro - MacRoberts LLP

Within: Projects

Illustrative of MacRoberts LLP's excellent reputation in PFI/PPP/NPD/hub projects, it is the only Scottish law firm on the Scottish government's projects panel; it advises the client on infrastructure matters involving district heating, rail, roads, housing and IT investment. In addition, the firm has a strong client following of other public sector clients, such as NHS Highland, Glasgow City Council and Fife Council. It also acts for private sector sponsors, funders and subcontractors. In 2017, Duncan Osler, team head Rod Munro, Gillian Campbell and director Ben Powell acted for NHS Orkney as the procuring public body and main provider of funding for a new hospital in Kirkwall; the matter involved a novel structure for PPP/PFI in the UK. In addition, Munro, and senior associates Lynn Pentland, Margaret Kinnes and Sarah Pengelly, are advising NHS Lothian on its Royal Hospital for Sick Children and Department of Clinical Neurosciences NPD project and The Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh PFI project. The contentious side of the practice, particularly in relation to PFI/PPP disputes, is gaining momentum; Jennifer McKay, Powell and Munro recently represented The Edinburgh Schools Partnership Limited in the highly-publicised case of The Edinburgh Schools Partnership Limited v Galliford Try Construction (UK) Limited. Mike Barlow and Craig Bradshaw are also recommended. Senior solicitor Pryderi Thomas joined from Pinsent Masons LLP.
