Public Procurement

We are Stibbe Public Procurement specialists

We advise both public sector organisations and private sector companies on all aspects of competitive tender procedures from drafting documentation to litigation.

Public Procurement

Our specialists play a leading role in some of the largest and most complex public procurement and PPP projects in the Benelux, for both the (semi) public sector and private sector.

From the bidding process through to the contracting stage and final execution, we offer full legal assistance. The sectors we handle include construction and development, utilities, defence, ICT, services, and healthcare. Very often we work in close cooperation with the client’s project team, conversing on a daily basis to support their needs.

Our public procurement experts also handle the assignment and implementation of numerous public tenders. This includes designation of architects, engineering/study consultancies, general constructors, appointment of financiers and insurers, and supply contracts. We also help contracting authorities to set up transparent procurement procedures that are wholly compliant with the most recent EU and national procurement legislation, taking into account the particular interests of the authority concerned.  

As part of our comprehensive service, we act on high-profile disputes regarding public procurement before the courts and (in Belgium), the Council of State (Conseil d’État/Raad van State).

In the Netherlands, some of our lawyers have been appointed an expert in the 'Commission of Procurement Experts', formed by the State of the Netherlands to resolve procurement disputes.
