Given recent cuts in public sector spending, the PFI market in Northern Ireland is quiet, however our recent successes include:
- Education – currently acting for the preferred bidder, Ivywood Colleges Limited, in the Belfast Metropolitan College PPP Project
- E-Workplace Projects – currently part of the team advising a bidder on a significant Government accommodation Project which is currently at BAFO stage
With more than 9 experienced Solicitors, Patrick Fleming has an effective team behind him to offer clients a top rate service.
