Public Sector & Public Procurement

Public Sector & Public Procurement

The Public Sector & Public Procurement Practice Group led by Ute Jasper and Martin Schellenberg bundles the law firm's expertise across all of the firm's offices. The lawyers of the Practice Group have been among the market leaders for years. They are advising on many large public sector projects with a total volume exceeding EUR 20 billion.

Heuking Kühn Lüer Wojtek is once again ranked no. 1 in procurement law in the JUVE “Commercial Law Firms 2019/2020” Handbook. The handbook says about the practice group:

"The Public Procurement Practice, one of the leading public procurement practices in Germany, advises its clients in particular in the transport and real estate sectors, but also in IT procurement. The practice is regularly praised by its clients for its "professional competence at the highest level" and "its pragmatic approaches to solutions". Clients consult the team on complex and sometimes politically explosive projects, often at the interface to compliance."

Both in national rankings such as WirtschaftsWoche or Law Firms in Germany and in international rankings, the lawyers for public procurement and public law are regularly among the best advisers in their field.  

The bases of our success are:

  • We are one of the largest and thus most flexible teams in the public sector with net-worked offices all across Germany.
  • Our lawyers do not only know laws and jurisdiction, hurdles, and obstacles. They solve problems and design projects.
  • We are not advising according to departments with ever-changing specialist lawyers, but our partners are responsible for the success of the entire legal project.
  • With our office in Brussels, we offer special expertise on European Union topics and contacts to the European Union Commission.
  • We supply our clients with up-to-date information on new laws and judgments in our newsletters and seminars. Brief, to the point and practice-oriented.

We are proud of our clients' confidence: More than 90 percent of our assignments are follow-up matters or recommendations.
