Public Procurement & Government Tenders Practice

Working with a broad spectrum of private and public sector clients affords our firm an excellent knowledge of public and administrative law across the board. Our experience in procurement process in Syria dates back to the early years of our establishment not only as legal advisors and litigators, but also as legal and development consultants to the government and to international donors. The firm maintains its position as one of the premier law firms offering advice across the public law spectrum to commercial and regulated industry clients, keeping an eye on the commercial interests of our clients and in tune with the current economic and legislative climate. In public procurement litigation, the team has handled some of the most complex and difficult cases in this field and we pride ourselves with never having lost a case before the State Council.
