procurement


Government sector procurement is highly regulated and process driven. To avoid costly and time consuming legal challenges, access to expert advice is vital to government sector organisations. To ensure that competitors are not given unfair advantages, businesses competing for work from the government 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.

what we do...

  • Our clients - Local Enterprise Partnerships, NHS Trusts, business enterprise organisations, local authorities, private sector companies engaged in procurements or otherwise seeking to challenge decisions to award contracts to competitors.

  • Our experience - advising both the public sector (social care, education, health, government bodies, local authorities, public/private partnerships) and the private sector (from listed plcs to SMEs trying to work with local authorities for the first time). We regularly act for a number of national central procurement bodies.

  • One of the largest specialist procurement teams in the Midlands, acting for clients nationwide.

  • Specialist advice - on all aspects of the public procurement regime pursuant to the Public Contracts Regulations 2006 and 2015, as well as the underlying EU directives.

  • We have developed innovative solutions to public to public cooperation and other types of shared service arrangements.
