Course Is Corrected for Airport Redevelopment

September 20, 2018
Client Success


In an effort to redevelop an airport built long before current security protocols, an engineering design firm submitted an unsolicited proposal to design, build and finance a new terminal. The City of Kansas City, Missouri, had one month to review and negotiate a memorandum of understanding for a $1+ billion project.


The City Council and mayor determined that uniquely qualified outside legal counsel was essential to evaluate the project proposal and determine whether a P3 would yield a public benefit. Husch Blackwell helped correct the city’s course from a sole-source, unsolicited proposal with litigation risk to a competitively sourced project, and is advising the city on transaction negotiations and documentation.
