Administrative law

Administrative law largely comprises the legal norms that regulate public administration, its functions, operations, structure and status. Questions of general administration and local government are a key part of the statutory framework regulating the public sector and its operating environment.

 

We typically assist the public sector in responding to appeals concerning the decisions of local councils, municipal executive boards and committees, and decisions of municipal federations. Careful management of general administration and local government affairs requires lawyers to have a mature understanding of statutes governing the public sector operating environment.

The special nature of the public sector policymaking process often means that it is the role of our lawyers to serve as consulted specialists on decision-making bodies or to assist a local authority as counsel in judicial proceedings arising from an appeal against a decision.

We assist purchasing units in all industries in, among other things, the following matters:

 

  • Permissibility of contractual arrangements

  • Cooperation arrangements and purchasing cooperation

  • Competitive neutrality, public sector business and incorporation

  • Dominant market position

  • Corporate transaction control

  • Cartel investigation and competition law damages
