Steenstrup Stordrange has one of the market’s most competent teams in the area of public procurement law, and is considered a key provider of best practice and know-how in the field.
Highly qualified expertise in all the commercial law disciplines combined with a strong presence in all the major commercial and financial cities and regions in Norway, gives us a unique position to provide legally sound and commercially smart advice to our clients. Public procurement law has strong links to administrative law, construction law, competition law and EU/EEA law in general. Our procurement team can rely on expert assistance from SANDS teams in all these areas of law. In addition, we have some of Norway’s most highly ranked lawyers working on compliance, anti-corruption and white-collar crime.
Our lawyers represent public and private sector entities on a wide range of matters. For general advice, clients rely on us to anticipate potential issues and prepare suitable strategies and to assist in commercial assessments. We assist contracting authorities throughout all stages of the procurement process – from market consultations, drawing up procurement documents and contract drafting, negotiations, dispute resolution and through performance of contracts. For contracting authorities and utilities operators whose tendering processes have come under attack, or for disappointed tenderers seeking to challenge the award of a public contract, we help to resolve disputes and to litigate. The experience to address public procurement issues from the perspective of all those involved in the procurement process, enable us to provide precise and insightful advice in any situation.
Our procurement lawyers are attractive speakers in conferences and workshops. We provide tailored courses for specific entities, sectors or for specific problems.
