New practice of PPP emerged within the RBS’s legal division

The development of PPPs in Russia began with the adoption of the Concession Agreements Act. As a result, a number of major federal projects were initiated. Although in the first few years the PPP mechanism was practically not in demand among investors due to the lack of proper regulatory framework, at the moment this direction is actively supported by the state and Russian entrepreneurs.

The practice of public-private partnership is a way to attract investment, without which it is impossible to imagine the development of infrastructure in modern Russia and the whole world. Our clients are more and more involved in the realization of such projects in various spheres - from health care to education, from housing and public utilities to IT.
