Procurement

A significant amount of the work we do involves major international projects in Europe and we are familiar with the rules relating to public procurement. This is becoming increasingly important to the construction industry. We have worked on many procurement issues under EU Directives 2004/18 and 2004/17 and local laws including Public Contracts Regulations 2006 (as amended) and the Utilities Regulations 2006 (as amended).

The work we undertake is, however, not limited to representing clients in challenges before the courts. We often provide early advice in order to avoid mistakes in the procurement process. When working for contractors, time limits are important. Challenges have to be made very quickly if the tendering process has gone awry.
