Public Procurement Expertise

Our highly regarded Public Procurement team has significant experience in providing both contentious and non-contentious public procurement advice to public, utility and private sector clients. We are renowned for simplifying complexity and for offering practical and clear solutions. Our team regularly works on major complex projects as well as on routine procurements and liaises closely with other practice areas within the firm.

We advise on all aspects of public procurement, including on EU and Irish procurement law, guidelines and circulars. This includes advice on procurement strategy and execution, development of selection and award criteria, evaluation methodologies, debrief requirements, FOI requests and contract modifications. In addition, we draft the full range of procurement and contract documentation, including OJEU/eTenders notices, internal evaluation guidance and evaluation reports and conduct regular in-house procurement audits and procurement training for our clients.

We have successfully represented both complainants and public bodies in procurement proceedings before the High Court, Commercial Court and the Supreme Court and dealt with the European Commission in relation to various complaints and investigations taken at a European level.
