Public procurement and other contracts

Cornet Vincent Ségurel has recognised expertise in the area of public contracts on which we advise a broad array of government contract-awarding bodies and economic operators.

Our services cover all public contracts: government contracts, concessions of public services and complex contractual structures (public-private partnerships, long-term and short-term leasehold agreements, property rights, sales in a future state of completion).

We offer a global advisory service : comparative analysis and appropriate choices adapted to the contractual structure and selection procedure, preparation of contractual documents and bid files, analysis of offers, negotiation strategies and selection criteria, contractual finalisation, etc.

The support and involvement of other teams in the firm, in particular Tax and Banking & Finance, ensure that our clients will receive a complete and operational response to even their most complex needs.

Our daily practice of disputes in the making of public contracts (pre-contractual summary proceedings, claims challenging the validity of contracts, indemnity claims, etc.) ensures control and prevention of risks in this area.

The public law team also manages audits and follow-up of the performance of public contracts, providing expertise and legal security, when changes are needed or disputes occur.

We regularly publish articles and provide training, as well as  monitoring daily the European and domestic regulatory changes.
