When the City of Warsaw wanted to build a bridge across the Vistula they entrusted us with the legalities, from the notices on Day One all the way through to the contracts signing. While by no means our biggest tender project on the financial side, it is emblematic of what we can do for you, whether you intend to participate in a public tender as a contractor or whether, as the contracting party, you plan to conduct proceedings to award a public contract. You identify your need, and we make sure every single last detail is taken care of on the legal side.

Our strengths

  • Specialist team dedicated solely to public procurement and license-related issues
  • Full range of EU and Polish public procurement law issues, negotiations and transactions, including full support for  appeal procedures and representation at the National Chamber of Appeals and in common courts, also during the performance of contracts
  • Years of focus on the infrastructure sector, including the power, rail and road sectors. We handle projects in the waste management, medical and pharmaceutical, finance, insurance, telecommunications, IT and defense and security sectors.
