Legal Advice to Tenderring
Our specialized team provides in-depth legal services both to contracting authorities and tenderers concerning all aspects of public procurement law. Although our team provides legal advice with respect to all industries, we have particular expertise in large scale design and construction projects, the pharmaceutical sector, the utilization of non-repayable state aid and grant agreements.
The particular strength of our public procurement team lies in the versatile knowledge of its members. Our team is not only capable of advising government departments or market leading suppliers and contractors on how to conduct or participate in a tender, but is also ready to provide comprehensive advice on the contractual, tax or IP aspects of the specific public procurement tender and the contract to be concluded.
Members of our public procurement team are also distinguished participants of our top tier dispute resolution practice group. Therefore, it is safe to say that we do not shy away from representing our clientele in front of the Public Procurement Board or the Administrative Department of local courts.

Non-contentious representation of tenderers
Our team specializes in assisting the tenderers during the whole lifespan of their bid, including its compiling and electronic filing. Our team is by the side of its clients when it comes to challenging the bids of competing tenderers or defending its own. We have obtained extensive experience in both challenging decisions of the contracting authorities aimed at distorting competition to the disadvantage of our clients and rebutting any claim of contracting authorities with respect to the unjustified nature of our client’s bids.
Contentious representation of contracting authorities and tenderers alike
Members of our team do not get lost at the premises of either the Public Procurement Board or at the Administrative Departments of local courts! We are proud that we frequently represent both the contracting authorities and the tenderers. This gives us an invaluable insight into each aspect of public procurement related lawsuits.
Together with the members of the competition practice group of our firm, it is always one of the most challenging tasks to represent our clients in public procurement cartel cases. We are proud to say that we were fortunate enough to fight our way through most of the landmark cases of the last decade.
