ProjectFirst PPP by the French Ministry of Defence: training for helicopter flight crews.
Award LevelCommended
The lawyers' innovationThe first French defence PPP to be completed. The firm had to consistently devise new structures to juggle private and state risks in the project. There were no precedents in France for this, so the firm had to start from a completely blank page. Unusually, for France, the firm had to also understand the military, technical and financial aspects.
