Public Procurement

Our International Public Procurement Group provides cross-border and national advice to public sector organizations, companies bidding to the public sector and institutions financing public sector projects in all the key markets

We share best practice and know-how and are therefore better able to service the needs of our clients internationally and nationally, in particular helping bidders win business in markets outside the country in which they operate.

Our group has a great deal of experience acting on all sides of public procurement transactions which means that we have developed a deep understanding of the business and policy issues that arise and the sensitive aspects of working in complex, legally regulated and high profile public projects. This means that we are able to understand and anticipate the needs of all parties to enable projects to be delivered, including for suppliers bidding for contracts in more than one country.

As a full service firm, we advise on all areas of law that impact public procurement transactions and throughout the lifecycle of any transaction, from planning and advertising to negotiation, short-listing and contract award (including making and defending legal challenges) through to management of the contract (including advice on dispute resolution and avoidance). In doing so, we ensure that public procurement responsibilities between Government entity, prime and sub-contractors comply with relevant rules and regulations so that any subsidies and grants received are watertight.

Public Procurement involves the purchases of goods, services and public works by governments and public utilities. Public procurement is subject to national and international rules although not all public procurement is subject to these obligations. Under these rules public sector procurement must follow transparent open procedures ensuring fair conditions of competition for suppliers.
