Practice groupPublic Procurement

Mannheimer Swartling's public procurement specialists draw from a wealth of experience in the sector.

We regularly advise on major and complex projects such as PPP, infrastructure projects, outsourcing of IT and public transportation, procurement of subway and tram cars, procurement of nationally important purchases and corporate restructuring of company groups that include companies with an obligation to comply with public procurement legislation.

We are retained as advisers on public procurement by Swedish and foreign enterprises tendering for contracts as well as by contracting authorities and entities. We are every year involved in a large amount of review procedures before Swedish administrative courts.
