We have extensive experience in this topic, both from the point of view of assistance to public administrations and from assistance to companies and private entities. We have advised in national and international public bidding processes. We have provided assistance to business groups in the presentation of tenders of administrative contracts. We know the local hiring regime.

We provide legal assesment in the different modalities of intervention in this kind of procedure, in which the presence of legal advice is required. Analyzing the conformity under the law of the specifications in the cases in which this consideration is required. We also assist our clients in cases where the regulations governing the bidding process give rise to doubts as to compliance with the terms of access to it and, finally, if the decision adopted is not under the applicable law we articulate the actions that correspond in this regard.

We are aware of the proper regime of the special resources in the matter of contracting and the doctrine of the Administrative Courts of Contracts, as well as obviously the administrative contentious process in the matter.

We also provide legal assistance and we have an extensive contentious activity in the claim of compliance with its obligations to Public Administrations, in defense of the rights of concessionaires and contractors.

Public services

We devote a large part of our legal advice in this matter, to the provision of legal assistance to public service contractors. The regime in particular of the public service concession contract constitutes one of the matters that is the subject of the most frequent consultation and that generates not a few situations of conflict that, moreover, have an evident incidence, given that in a large number of cases, they affect very relevant services for citizens. Issues such as the tariff regime, the reestablishment of the economic balance of the concession or simply discrepancies that arise in contracts that require collaboration between the granting administration and the concessionaire during the normally protracted period of its validity.

Contracting on excluded sectors

We have experience in the matter, both for assistance to entities affected by this regime and for the provision of legal support to bidders in procedures convened under the legal regime of excluded sectors. We have experience in each one of these sectors, having faced processes of challenging regulatory norms of the contracting procedures governed by this specific public legal regime, as well as the intervention in bidding procedures corresponding to public and private entities involved in the special sectors subject of this regulation.

Public sector contracts

We provide legal assistance in the different modalities of intervention in this kind of procedure, in which the presence of legal advice is required. On the one hand, analyzing the conformity to law of the specifications in the cases in which this consideration is required. We also assist our clients in cases where the regulations governing the bidding process give rise to doubts as to compliance with the terms of access to it and, finally, if the decision adopted in the same, we articulate the actions that proceed in this regard.

We are aware of the proper regime of the special resource in the matter of contracting and of the doctrine of the Administrative Courts of Contracts, as well as obviously of the administrative contentious order in the matter.

We also provide legal assistance and we have an extensive contentious activity in the claim of compliance with its obligations to Public Administrations, in defense of the rights of concessionaires and contractors. The issues related to the default of the Public Administrations in the fulfillment of payment obligations derived from the execution of contracts with the public sector, have occupied a significant part of our contentious activity.

The precise knowledge of the applicable legal regime, from the point of view of administrative contracting to the different entities and subjects that make up the public sector, constitutes another of the issues to which we have dedicated a good part of our work and in which we provide a specialized legal advice.
