Our practice has a tradition of involvement in major procurements contributing to the formation of the legislation governing this area, such as the tenders for the privatisation of the Neorion Shipyards in 1996-7 and Elefsis Shipyards in 1997-8, the Project Concession of the Rion-Antirion Fixed Link in 1996-9 and the Elefsina-Korinthos-Patra Motorway in 2006-7.

We continue to provide a specialised, end-to-end service in this highly regulated area to tendering bodies, participants and companies and have acted on behalf of overseas and locally based companies, joint ventures, financing institutions and the Hellenic Republic.

Running & Responding to Tenders

We advise companies on responding to and evaluating tenders, compliance with procedural rules and specifications, legislative and regulatory requirements, bid submission tactics and strategies, drafting submissions and negotiation of terms. Tendering authorities rely on us to assist them in structuring, documenting, running and managing of tenders and procurement contracts and the procedures to use. We also advise on the European Union and national legislative and regulatory framework governing public procurement and the assignment of funds granted by European institutions to public projects.

Challenges & Disputes

When tender procedures or procurement contracts are challenged, we work closely with the Administrative litigation team to provide a cross-practice expertise in resolving resulting disputes.
