Addleshaw Goddard recently expanded the breadth of its infrastructure practice through the addition of energy infrastructure specialist Paul Minto in Edinburgh. The group's recent work for the Department of Transport under the leadership of Leeds-based Paul Hirst regarding its new franchise combining the current InterCity West Coast with the incoming HS2 service is a good example of its strong presence in the rail transport sector. In the social infrastructure space, Matthew Newing led the advice to a consortium as development partner for a pathfinder project for the Department of Health which will lead to the development of two new hospitals in Kingston and Tooting. David Hartley acts for SPV and asset management service Imagile in all aspects of its PFI and PPP project portfolio, including negotiation settlement arrangements and overseeing major variations to ongoing projects. The 'pragmatic and creative' Michael O’Connor leads the team and is also a name to note alongside Jacqui Langley-White and Andrew Pettinger .
