Through our experience of working for education clients and across the public sector, we genuinely know the pressures you face and the issues we need to solve for you. In particular, we ensure the solutions we provide are proportionate, practical and soundly based on our extensive understanding of this complex area of law.

From advising on a specific aspect, such as the drafting of a contract to accompany an invitation to tender, through to managing the whole procurement process, our expert team provide advice that is both legally and commercially sound.

What we do...

  • Reviewing all of your tender documents, producing contracts and ensuring you use appropriate documentation throughout the process. 
  • Advising on the management of clarification questions. 
  • Advising on whether the EU procurement regime applies. 
  • Supporting you on how to evaluate the financial aspects of a tender.
