Authorities, public law entities and certain utilities operators are not free to contract. Often, they are required to follow public procurement rules when awarding contracts for works, supplies, services or concessions. Rely on Loyens & Loeff’s procurement experts to advise you on every step of the procurement process.

Public & Private Parties

Even when public procurement rules do not apply, authorities and public law entities must respect general principles in relation to transparency and competitive tendering when entering into arrangements with third parties. Likewise, private sector operators bidding for public contracts in local, EU or international public procurement procedures must take into account a complex set of rules and related risks of non-compliance. Our team will navigate you through all rules and regulations.

We provide strategic advice and transactional support, from how to submit a tender to collaboration with other  commercial or government organisations. We also assist you with all kinds of procurement disputes, whether in a pre-litigation phase or when challenging decisions before the administrative and civil courts.
