Back to Public Procurement

The relationship of companies with the Public Administration entities is varied, constant and, in many cases, problematic. From the application for a municipal operating license, the participation in a public tender, and even the discussion of a fine imposed due to an environmental infringement, all these scenarios involve dealing with the Administration.

In that context, the advice of CMS Grau is comprehensive and specialized. Our services include consultancy in ordinary procedures aimed at obtaining licenses, permits and authorizations in the most varied sectors. Similarly, we advise on sanctioning procedures in complex sectors: environment, hydrocarbons, telecommunications, electricity, and competence, among others.

Moreover, and hand in hand with the Infrastructure and Dispute Resolution Areas, we provide comprehensive advice on contracts with the State; from the selection processes to the execution of public contracts, including the settlement of disputes in arbitration.

We also provide specialized advice on administrative procedures for the control and elimination of bureaucratic barriers, in order to avoid any contingency linked to norms, acts or provisions of the Public Administration that prevent the access or permanence in the market of economic agents.

The team is led by Ramón Huapaya, who has extensive experience representing clients in this area, advising both the private sector and the Public Administration. The professional experience of the team is combined with an impeccable and recognized academic trajectory as professors in the most important universities in the country and abroad. It is worth mentioning that Mr. Huapaya is the author of important publications on the subject, which led him to be considered as amicus curiae in the last Supreme Jurisdictional Plenary Session in Administrative and Constitutional Litigation Matters, and member of the Working Group appointed by the Ministry of Justice for the reform of the Law that regulates the Contentious-Administrative Process.
