Public Procurement

We have advised public sector entities and private companies in a variety of different procurement procedures for about ten years. Our advice includes the development of legally compliant contractual structures and procurement procedures that provide best value for money. We bring in experience and generic expertise to craft tailor-made solutions for each individual case. We accompany private sector clients with comprehensive advice, including their strategy for success in public tender processes. We advise bidders on all procurement law issues, examine tender documents and represent our clients in administrative review proceedings and courts.

PPP

We have worked on PPP projects for around eight years and have extensive experience in the legal and contractual design and implementation of PPP projects regarding infrastructure and construction. We advise public authorities and bidders during both original procurement and review procedures. Jochen Eichler has been involved in all the PPP-Projects on German motorways (known as A-models) that have been performed so far.

Whenever it is requested by our clients and appropriate, we work closely together with highly qualified lawyers that are specialised in other relevant fields of law (e.g. finance, antitrust, tax).

State Aid

Another focus of our practice is to provide legal advice on state aid matters for companies and the public sector, especially when awarding public contracts and concessions, as well as in the context of privatisations. Here, state aid issues can play an essential role and must be considered in the design of legally compliant procedures and contracts.

Trade and Customs

Our practice includes advising clients on trade and customs law. We advise companies on regulatory issues in the context of the import of goods into the European Union and the export of goods from the European Union.
