Procurement and Commercial

Newboulds are experts in public procurement law. With deep experience across the full range of procurement procedures and with contracting authorities in the UK and globally, we are well placed to advise your business.

Any stage of the procurement process can incur legal issues. This includes market engagement activity to procurement document reviews, contract terms to tender evaluation and contract awards, all of which can require legal challenge where necessary.

Public procurement law has underlying principles such as open, fair and transparent obligations on the contracting authorities.  These principles, however, are often subtly breached, and it is our job to support your business in gaining the strongest market position to win these contracts.

New procurement considerations such as social value and environmental evaluation criteria also need careful consideration and testing to ensure there are no legal barriers for your business to fairly compete for a particular tender.  We will advocate on your behalf to make sure the contracting authority is acting lawfully to protect your place in the competition.
