The way to winning tenders is paved with good intentions and excellent advice.
From tender to review
Our team has extensive experience of public procurement issues. Among our clients are both principals from the public sector and bidders.
More specifically, we provide advice to local authorities, universities and infrastructure operators (including utilities) in their role as principals when planning, organising and implementing public procurement procedures. Austrian companies as well as international corporations and consortia seek our advice in their bidding procedures.
Our services include advice on drafting tender documents and contracts, assistance in our clients’ negotiations during public procurement procedures, drafting expert opinions (on whether a tender procedure is compulsory, for instance) and providing legal representation in proceedings at the Regional Administrative Courts, the Supreme Administrative Court, the Austrian Constitutional Court as well as the European Court of Justice. Among our core areas of practice is advising clients in tender procedures for major infrastructure projects, particularly PPP projects.
In addition, we have earned a solid reputation as experts and advisors at a national and at a European level, particularly in cross-border projects tendered by international organisations, including the EBRD, EIB or World Bank, and in the pinpoint application of EU public procurement rules in tenders (best practices).
