Services

Our procurement law specialists guide clients through the entire public procurement life cycle from inception to execution and strategically join their clients’ thought process. Our team is active in all sectors where procurement regulation has an impact, such as education, real estate and construction, healthcare and life sciences, ICT, telecommunications, finance, utilities, sports, energy, and the environment.

We handle the various facets of public procurement, including general advice, guidance on the award, questions on the implementation, and assessment of the tender procedures. We also assist clients with award decisions and with works, services and supply contract negotiations and execution.

Due to the multifaceted nature of public procurement, our experts regularly collaborate with lawyers from our various practices. We offer a multidisciplinary approach, which proves to be beneficial in complex contracts and large-scale projects governed by procurement law. Thanks to our extensive expertise, we are able to act as an intermediary between all the parties involved, to ensure a proper implementation.

Our team also has substantial experience with handling disputes, both in the pre-contractual part of public procurement (both before the Council of State and before ordinary courts) and the execution phase (before ordinary courts). We have considerable expertise in Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) and mediation processes more specifically. Our experience with major contracts and knowledge of mediation, public sector and public procurement can be considered unique. This combination allows us to understand the complexity of the procurement process and to mitigate the risks associated with it.

Many members of our practice have close contact with universities and hold academic mandates (professor or assistant) at the most renowned universities in the Benelux. When giving advice or handling disputes, we combine our day-to-day practical experience and theoretical knowledge. As a result of our involvement in matters that create new relevant case law and in academic activities, we are particularly well informed about legal developments in the field. Our experts frequently author publications on topics relating to procurement law and are regular guest speakers at seminars and conferences.
