Public procurement

[The practice's] procurement team is a central plank of its competition law offering. It advises public bodies and private tenderers on PFI/PPP commissions, utilities, infrastructure and transport projects. The lawyers also counsel on contract compliance issues and handle challenges for buyers and suppliers.’
Chambers UK, 2013

The competitive tendering requirements of public procurement rules across the globe can be extremely complex. Our London team works closely with our global group of public procurement lawyers across Europe, the United States, Canada, Latin America, Australia and Africa, and will pilot your business through the relevant regulations.

Companies bidding for contracts, central and local government bodies and utility companies subject to procurement rules in sectors such as energy, water and rail instruct us on their most critical public procurement needs.

Our areas of work include

  • compliance
  • procurement processes- pre-qualification, selection, negotiation and award
  • concessions and framework agreements
  • litigation
  • challenging procurement procedures and award decisions.
