Public Procurement

The quality of public services is increasingly determined by skilled public procurement management. Your business and any real estate developments, joint ventures, restructuring or sale programme cannot function without a thorough understanding of how procurement regulates your plans. As a contracting authority or a bidder in local and international procurement procedures, you can benefit from legal advisors with extensive experience on both sides of the process.

This approach means we can resolve your complex public tender issues, including the formation and building of bidding consortia, protection of confidential information, anti-trust matters, evaluations, specific rules on framework agreements, concession contracts and complex PPP projects. Furthermore, we can assist regarding feedback and reports on how to approach different regulated tender procedures.
