Public Procurement & State Aid


In the field of public procurement law, we advise contracting authorities/entities on the one hand, and companies on the bidder side on the other hand, on specific procurement procedures. These are sometimes complex not only in terms of the procedure, but also with regard to the subject matter of the award. The focus is on services, sometimes combined with the supply of goods. In some cases, certain legal constructions must be chosen, such as bidding consortia or the involvement of subcontractors. In practice, advice can begin even before a procurement procedure is initiated and can extend to the decision of the last instance.

In the field of state aid law, our services are used by state aid granting authorities in Austria as well as in neighbouring countries. The focus is not only on substantive law, but also covers the entire procedure, including informal contacts with the European Commission (DG COMP) as well as the formal phase in the course of the notification of an aid or aid framework up to the ex-post examination of an aid.
