Procurement and Tendering

With a highly qualified and at the same time very experienced practice group of specialized attorneys and a close network within the firm, we cover all areas of public procurement law and related fields of law (budgetary law, European law, state aid law, administrative law, public funding law, private and public construction law, architectural law, IT law, industrial property rights) in an interdisciplinary manner.

Across all commercial fields, we support the public sector - also as a sectoral contracting entity - and recipients of funding in the implementation of award procedures and all related issues.

We offer public-sector clients customized solutions up to the complete execution of the procedures as a contact point.

At the same time, we also assist companies as applicants or bidders in the application and submission of bids in tendering procedures.

We also represent our clients in review procedures as well as in appeal and compensation procedures before the civil courts.
