Public Procurement Law

Our team can advise you on all issues that arise at a national and international level in connection with public procurement law. Whether you are a contracting authority or a bidder – we are an experienced partner when it comes to supporting you in a public procurement process so as to obtain the best possible result. We use our extensive legal and economic expertise creatively in our work – including at the interfaces between public procurement law and budget, European and public business law – with a view to optimally implementing your public procurement strategy.

You can rely on our many years of experience and our in-depth knowledge when preparing and carrying out the award of public contracts: we structure the entire public procurement process, draft the tendering documents, assist you with the evaluation of the bids, and conduct the contract negotiations. If you are a company, we have the necessary expertise to provide you throughout the public procurement process with top-quality legal and strategic advice.

We keep an eye on funding projects already at the political planning stage. As a result of this awareness in combination with our excellent industry knowledge, notably in the areas of Energy, Health Care & Life Science, Information Tech & Telecommunication, Mobility & Logistics, and Real Estate & Infrastructure, we know at an early stage about any subsidies that could be of interest to our clients. We monitor the development of funding programmes and subsequently advise you on how to best use the funds for your business activities.

We work out precise answers to your questions in all areas of public procurement law. As a full-service law firm, we can draw on the professional knowledge of our colleagues from other fields of law and, therefore, always come up with the best possible solutions to your problems.
