Global Infrastructure Partners

We advised Global Infrastructure Partners (GIP), the leading independent infrastructure investor, on the sale together with its co-investors of a 50.01% shareholding in London Gatwick Airport to VINCI Airports. The transaction values Gatwick at £8.3 billion on a cash and debt free basis.


We advised KKR on the acquisition of Viridor Limited by one of its infrastructure funds for an enterprise value of £4.2 billion. Viridor is one of the UK’s leading recycling and residual waste businesses with a large portfolio of energy from waste facilities as well as landfills.

UK Infrastructure Bank

We advised UK Infrastructure Bank in relation to a £50m loan to Portsmouth Water. The loan represents UKIB’s first investment in the UK’s water industry, with the proceeds being used to finance the construction of the Havant Thicket Reservoir, Hampshire. The reservoir will help to protect internationally rare chalk rivers by providing additional water supplies and resilience to the South of England, an area with significant risk of water shortages due to climate change and a growing population.
