Public Procurement

Poland

Contracting authorities and bidders in local, EU and international procurement procedures, need to rely on legal advice informed by extensive experience on both sides of the process. Public procurement legislation has undergone some significant changes in Central and Eastern Europe in recent years. Despite legislation moving closer towards harmonisation with the EU, many practical challenges remain.

CMS has worked on scores of complex projects in the region over the last two decades and fields specialist public procurement lawyers across 15 full-service offices. Our lawyers offer a powerful combination of local expertise and insight coupled with international know-how and perspective on public procurement issues. We can guide you through complex public tender issues, from the formation and building of bidding consortia, concession contracts and sophisticated PPP projects, through to compliance, investigations and procurement-related disputes and litigation.

In Poland and across CMS, our specialists have longstanding sector expertise across core industries such as infrastructure, life sciences and healthcare, aviation, transport, and technology, media and communications. This approach means we can resolve your complex public tender issues, including formation and building of bidding consortia, protection of confidential information, anti-trust matters, evaluations, specific rules around framework agreements, concession contracts and complex PPP projects. We also advise on feedback and debriefing and how to approach different regulated tender procedures. And finally, we also provide support before tribunals and courts across Europe, or in front of the European Commission.
