Procurement disputes

Our expert team of procurement lawyers frequently represents authorities, utilities and bidders on UK and EU procurement law as well as non-regulated procurement processes in a range of industry sectors including Transport, Energy, Utilities, and Education.

The team is dedicated to providing robust, commercial and prompt legal advice that ensures a compliant commercial process for our clients. We also advise on procurement disputes should they arise either during the procurement process or after award.

Our extensive knowledge of procurement law enables us to advise public sector clients on procurement strategy, and how best to structure arrangements to manage any issues. Our authority/utility clients include central and local Government, universities and transport, water and energy utilities.

We advise bidders on ensuring the process is fair and their responses are compliant. We also support bidders in responding to errors in the process and legal challenges or claims (including urgent response during the standstill period).

In recent years our Procurement represented the successful Appellants in the Supreme Court in withstanding a procurement challenge and establishing the right for UK authorities to rely upon the Teckal exemption (Risk Management Partners Ltd v Brent LBC, London Authorities Mutual Ltd and Harrow LBC [2011] 7UKSC).

We are happy to provide you with an initial assessment and recommend preliminary action on a fixed fee basis in order to provide you with certainty of cost.
