Infrastructure Partner Geoffrey Yarema Named a P3 Pioneer by NCPPP
Geoffrey Yarema, a Founder and Partner of Nossaman’s Infrastructure Practice Group, was recently recognized by The National Council for Public-Private Partnerships (NCPPP) as one of the Top 10 P3 Transportation Infrastructure Pioneers.
Mr. Yarema was cited as a key force behind the creation and modernization of the TIFIA and Private Activity Bonds programs—both essential building blocks for the US P3 program, for his work serving on the National Surface Transportation Infrastructure Financing Commission, and for his efforts as an expert resource to Congress and Republican and Democratic administrations on five different federal surface transportation reauthorizations.
Additionally, NCPPP noted that Nossaman’s Infrastructure Practice Group, which Mr. Yarema helped found, has advised more US transportation agencies on successful P3 transactions than any other law firm throughout the 25-year history of the sector, including the Virginia, Texas, California and Florida departments of transportation, the Indiana Finance Authority and Los Angeles World Airports.
The honorees were chosen by a select committee of NCPPP members, who were tasked with identifying professionals that have demonstrated tenacity, creativity and [the] will to incorporate this alternative project delivery method into the traditional financing and procurement model.
