Seeing all sides & finding solutions & keeping it simple & cutting through red tape & focused on your objectives & navigating challenges & that’s International Public Projects and Procurement with Bird & Bird
Our International Public Projects and Procurement Group provides cross-border and domestic advice to public sector organisations and utilities, companies bidding and doing business with them and institutions financing public sector projects in all of the key markets across Europe.
Although based on the TFEU and various European procurement directives, public procurement law and practice in European marketplaces varies widely from country to country. At the same time, the pressure on public money in many European countries has triggered widespread changes in how supplies, services and works are purchased and how deals are structured and has increased the pressure of competition. It is also becoming much more productive for bidders to take action, but doing so successfully requires swift, effective action.
Advising both purchasing bodies and bidders on complex procurement processes and procurement law challenges and disputes, we provide integrated advice on procurement law, commercial negotiations, contract drafting and dispute resolution. Clients turn to us for the value we can add to their involvement in the procurement process, whether through advice on procurement strategy, structuring bids, helping to resolve disputes or just an instinct for what to do next.
We provide expertise in all areas of law affecting procurement transactions at any stage of the lifecycle including:
