About Harkins Cunningham LLP
Harkins Cunningham LLP ("HC") celebrated its 25th anniversary in 2017. Originally colleagues at Pepper, Hamilton & Sheetz, John Harkins and Paul Cunningham founded a partnership in 1992, focusing on putting the client's interests first, supported by a collegial partnership with no internal competition. Select hiring of talented lawyers and staff combined with efficient, cost effective management secures the firm's top reputation with clients and other law firms. The offices in Philadelphia and Washington DC specialize in the areas of expertise developed by the two founding partners.
John J. Harkins Jr. practices primarily in complex litigation involving issues of corporate, securities and antitrust law, contracts, intellectual property, professional liability and ERISA, frequently arguing such cases in appellate courts. He has also advised directors on their fiduciary and other duties, corporate clients on disclosure issues, special committees in the investigation of alleged corporate wrongdoing, and corporations on the defenses available to them under Pennsylvania law against hostile takeover bids.
Paul Cunningham's practice is dedicated to assisting public and private entities in highly regulated and politicized environments through effective legal, legislative, administrative and public affairs strategies and advocacy. For profit and not for profit freight and passenger railroads have benefitted from his representation and guidance. He has extensive experience in other network and infrastructure industries, including water and power. His understanding of the core challenges facing these industries ranks among the most thorough in the legal industry.
For the past years, public-private partnership (PPP) has gained global popularity as an alternative to funding public projects. This provides a means for public companies, organizations and government entities to execute projects amidst financial constraints with the aid of a private sector. However, the opportunities offered by PPP do not come without risks.

They will address commonly raised issues with PPPs and will provide best practices and practical tips to successfully complete a project. They will also help the audience better understand the legal and regulatory framework of this significant topic.
Key topics include:
· Public-Private Partnerships:
· Common Risks and Pitfalls
