Government Contracts

Who We Are

Due to the strong public procurement practice we are ideally suited for government related transactions. We have acted for and against state agencies in various sectors and we have assisted corporations in PPP projects including planning stages and negotiations. If necessary, we litigate for clients against state agencies and we do act for the state in the courts if the contractors have defaulted.
