Lee, David – Hot 100

Over the past three years, Allen & Overy’s (A&O) PFI wunderkind has found himself at the centre of the most groundbreaking PFI deals.

Lee led the team advising the funders on the £1bn financing of the Ministry of Defence’s Skynet 5 satellite project and is currently advising Barts and the London NHS Trust on the £1bn Barts and the London PFI hospital project, the largest hospital PFI to date.

Lee was previously the only lawyer in the Treasury Taskforce, where he pro-duced the original guidance on PFI contract standardisation, which has been the foundation for PFI contracts since 1999.
