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 40 billion.

Heuking Kühn Lüer Wojtek is once again ranked no. 1 in procurement law in the JUVE “Commercial Law Firms 2020/2021” Handbook. The handbook says about the practice group:

"The awarding practice, which is among the market leaders, advises clients on complex projects, especially in the areas of transport, construction and IT awards. In addition to advice on innovative projects, such as shipbuilding using liquid gas propulsion or automated driving in bus and rail transport, clients consult the practice on building land offensives, such as social housing."

"But Heuking is also developing the practice dynamically internally by appointing 3 equity partners at the turn of the year - an unusually high number for public procurement practices".

"Extensive experience in the structuring of tenders and politically sensitive mandates."

"Often recommended: Dr. Ute Jasper ("fast, pragmatic solutions with the highest level of expertise. Competence", client; "strong presence in the transport sector", "excellent lawyer", "good acquisition strategy and good market standing", competitor), Ulf Christiani, Dr. Martin Schellenberg ("an old hand, is confident in his answers and quick to find solutions", client; "pragmatic, clever solutions", competitor)"

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.
