Public procurement

The annual volume of public procurement is huge. An individual public procurement is often a complex exercise. Managing this process to a high and cost-effective standard calls for strong specialist expertise. Finland’s national public procurement strategy seeks to make the country a European leader in public procurement management, expertise, use of information, innovation and responsibility. Public procurement legislation seeks to optimise public expenditure.

Finnish Procurement Lawyers Attorneys Ltd. is a law firm that specialises in public procurement. Our references concerning procurements managed under the Act on Public Contracts, the Special Sectors Procurement Act and the Act on Public Defence and Security Procurements are among the most notable in Finland. Our lawyers discharge demanding procurements under new, innovative procurement procedures productively and effectively.

Careful conduct of the procurement process requires lawyers to have a broad understanding of public sector operations, finance and strategy work, and a command of the legal framework related to the operating environment. Our lawyer typically serves as a procurement unit project manager, managing the procurement process from start to finish on a turnkey basis. This comprehensive approach sets us apart from several operators in the field.
