Hayat Brown LLC, a boutique civil engineering and advisory firm based in Washington, DC, has acquired the public-private partnership (P3)-infrastructure-real estate advisory practice of Alvarez & Marsal (A&M).

A&M P3 helps government agencies and higher education institutions analyze and execute creative finance and delivery solutions for major capital projects with private sector partners.
