Patrick Harder, chair of Nossaman’s Infrastructure Group, is widely known for leadership in the field of public-private partnerships (P3s) and other innovative project delivery methods such as design-build and construction manager at-risk. Public agencies actively seek his guidance in procuring some of the largest, most important projects in the country. Clients have confidence that Harder can miti-gate risks, solve problems and advance their projects smoothly and successfully – often through cutting-edge approaches. In fact, while working with the State of Florida and its advisors, he helped create a model for the use of availability payment P3 structures that laid the groundwork for such transactions across the United States. Among his efforts has been his work serving as leader of the legal team advising on a $4.9 billion APM train system to ease access in and out of the Los Angeles International Airport.
