Public Law

Public procurement

Since the firm was founded, UGGC Avocats has gained extensive experience in public procurement law (public concessions; procurement procedures; partnership agreements; complex contractual systems). Today this experience is recognised by economic stakeholders throughout France, making UGGC Avocats one of the country’s top firms in its field.

We offer a full range of services to private-sector corporations and SMEs, civil engineering firms, and public utility operators, including advice on the implementation of business strategies for public-sector clients (especially in the specific context of tendering procedures), assistance with responses to calls to tender, and support for contract management and handling disputes with respect to performance (formalising complaints, negotiating amendments, etc.).

Our Public Business Law department also advises France’s largest national public operators, offering support for the structuring and performance of complex contracts. We advise them on how to secure their contracting and procurement practices and conduct their tendering procedures. We also assist our clients with disputes relating to the performance and renegotiation of all types of public procurement contracts.

Our team has accumulated considerable expertise in contractual litigation relating to the awarding of public contracts (pre-contractual interlocutory procedures, actions for annulment against the contract itself, and claims for damages) and the performance of these contracts. We have developed a strong track record in alternative dispute resolution (transaction; conciliation; mediation; arbitration), especially for complex contracts.

Our litigation practice also handles the criminal and disciplinary law aspects of public procurement (offences of favouritism, illegal acquisitions of interest, etc.).
