Public Procurement

We advise leading infrastructure enterprises, investors, and ICT companies as well as contracting authorities and the public sector. Our attorneys offer legal advice for contracting authorities and tenderers in all matters concerning public procurement. We can help you prepare tender documents and procurement conditions meeting your expectations and needs as well as participate in negotiations on final agreements to be concluded with tenderers. We can review and challenge unfair conditions of tender documents, prepare bids, and help you with negotiations.
We are experienced not only in local procurement specifics, but also in the practices and rulings of EU institutions. The competence and quality of the work of our team has been acknowledged by independent international publications Chambers Europe and Legal 500.
