Global procurement law experts

Our global procurement team provides innovative, risk assessed advice to the public and private sectors on procurement law and associated trade issues. Our experience spans UK, EU and WTO GPA public procurement regimes where we advise state and regional governments; other public sector regulated bodies such as universities, airports and harbours; leading private sector contractors; and third sector organisations. We advise on compliance, innovative procurement solutions, risk management and procurement litigation.  

We work with clients across sectors and jurisdictions, reflecting the international nature of supply chains and trade regulation.

We are there to help at all stages of a project lifecycle. We help clients with:

  • Soft market testing / procurement planning,
  • Innovation partnerships and competitive dialogue procedures,
  • Structuring projects outside of the procurement regime,
  • Supporting on contract award and tender debriefing,
  • Changes to procurement contracts, and
  • Procurement challenges (High Court actions, EU tribunals and behind the scenes to achieve resolutions to issues).

Our team advises both bidders and buyers on the full range of procurement disputes across all sectors. Our strength in depth means that we can deploy resources from any of our offices in the world, working at the highest level to achieve the best possible outcome from litigation or negotiated settlements.

Our team is ranked in all major directories for procurement law and has developed a reputation for providing advice on complex issues both pragmatically and from your perspective.
