Public procurement law
We advise public bodies awarding contracts as well as the contractors attempting to secure such contracts. Since this is a very complex field of law that changes rapidly because of legal decisions by the Procurement Chambers and Divisions of the Court of Appeals (Vergabekammer and Vergabesenat), it is indispensable to take the advice from attorneys at an early stage for bid invitations, selection of bidders and evaluation of the bids.
There is an increasing number of mistakes being made in competitive bidding procedures, which results in a review process for the awarding of contracts. This can cause delays for months. Those who bid for public contracts should also seek legal advice. We help bidders draft their quotation, recognize legal issues in the awarding process, meet the criteria for filing a complaint and deal with a review of the awarding of the contract.
