Public procurement

We provide legal advice to Polish and foreign firms at all stages of public procurement proceedings (regular and sectoral), in particular with regard to infrastructure, the power industry and services sector. We successfully represent our clients in proceedings before the National Appeals Chamber. The claims we filed with common courts against judgements made by the National Appeals Chamber have led to precedent-setting decisions in several cases.
