Bird & Bird's International Defence & Security team are delighted to have contributed to the global 2021 edition of 'Getting the Deal Through: Defence & Security Procurement'. Our team has written the chapters for France, Germany, Italy, Poland and the UK and Elizabeth Reid is contributing editor for the publication.
This annual publication provides excellent expert analysis of how government procurement works in this highly regulated sector and is an ideal tool for in-house counsel and commercial practitioners.
Technology continues to disrupt this sector: as the assets and services being procured become more complex, a fit for purpose procurement process is vital for both the procuring entities and suppliers. Our experts analyse all the hot topics, including single source regulations, competitive processes, intellectual property, standard form contracts, anti-bribery & corruption, export controls and sanctions. They also explore some of the wider macroeconomic factors driving change: COVID-19, Brexit and a free trade agreement, and the election of a new US president.
Please get in touch if you would like to hear more about how our international team can help you.
