Public sector procurement is highly regulated and process driven. To avoid costly and time consuming legal challenges, access to expert advice is vital to public sector organisations. To ensure that competitors are not given unfair advantages, businesses competing for work from the public sector need experienced lawyers. From initial advertising to handling requests for information, our specialist team understands your environment and will work with you to provide pragmatic legal advice throughout the process.
