-- The Board of the Association for the Improvement of American Infrastructure (AIAI) has appointed Construction Law attorney Frank M. Rapoport, partner at the law firm of Peckar & Abramson, P.C., as its new chief strategy advisor. Rapoport’s role involves the strategic direction of AIAI’s primary P3 action agenda, the development of key outreach issues and working with AIAI’s Government Affairs and Law and Legislative committees to identify industry issues and propose appropriate action to ensure a successful Public-Private-
Partnerships (P3) outlook in the US Market.
“AIAI is at an inflection point, there is much work to do in the industry if we are to create a strong foundation for the future of P3s in the American Market,” said William Marino, Star America CEO and AIAI Chairman. “Frank’s industry knowledge, market understanding and strong industry relationships will complement the current team and provide us with the additional lift we need as we move forward.”

He is highly regarded for strategizing and implementing successful business-capture plans for clients pursuing P3, design-build and complex infrastructure projects. He combines a deep understanding of the legal and political framework for P3s with the experience of having handled big-ticket government contracts and construction litigation. His knowledge and respect for the political issues in P3 deals have led to many successful collaborations with key government officials.
Peckar & Abramson, P.C. maintains offices in New York, New Jersey, Florida, California, Washington, D.C., Illinois, Georgia and Pennsylvania, and has affiliations with global firms in Latin America (through its founding membership in CONSTRULEGAL)
