Public procurement law is becoming increasingly important. In recent years, there has been a growing awareness to check award procedures of the public sector. The need for public authorities to seek legal counselling is thus considerable. Meeting this need is one of our tasks.
Legal advice for tendering requires not only knowledge of basic public procurement guidelines, but also a careful analysis of at times complex structures of the content to be awarded, in order to ensure irrefutable tendering terms. We have counselled, for example, on the allocation of contracts for the first german disease-management-programs, as well as the allocation of major public construction and IT service projects.
Moreover, we advise on the drafting of documents required for public procurement, correspondence with potential bidders, legal issues relating to the selection of the winning bidder, as well as follow-up disputes.
