Public Procurement

Our public procurement department advises public entities on the design and drafting of specifications and contractual documents, as well as providing proactive assistance to companies in relation to the interpretation of rights and obligations and the definition of the best strategy to follow in tenders, using our vast knowledge and experience of the corresponding regulations and case law. 

We advise on the key phase following the conclusion of agreements with regards to disputes linked to their execution, arising from concepts such as contractual amendments, financial rebalancing, unjust enrichment, claims for damages and claims for the payment of outstanding debts. Moreover, our services extend to subsequent appeals before the authorities and courts against actions and decisions.

The multidiscipline composition of our team enables us to understand our clients’ needs in order to maximise their chances of success not only from a public procurement perspective, but also with regards to key regulatory elements such as European Union law and market unity legislation.

With more than 200 lawyers in 44 countries specialising in public procurement, CMS is able to boast a far-reaching and extraordinary capacity in this sector.
