Else have a team of commercial solicitors that specialise in advising on public tenders.

Public Tenders

Public procurement is a process by which government departments or local authorities purchase work, goods, or services from companies.

This process involves a hybrid of commercial law, contract law and public law. It is based on the European Union’s legal principles, which aim to ensure non-discrimination, transparency, and fair competition between companies.

At Else Solicitors, based in Burton-on-Trent, we advise organisations during the public tender application process.

As a full-service commercial law firm with Corporate, Construction, Property, Employment, and Litigation departments, we are fully equipped to ensure that our clients’ procurement strategy is well-planned, compliant, robust so as to mitigate any issues.

Procurement Disputes

Sometimes public procurement bodies infringe on tendering legislation rules, which can cause a company to wrongly lose out on a contract.

The public tender application process can be time-consuming and costly, we act on behalf of companies to claim damages if they feel they have not been treated fairly in this process.

Our skilled team of dispute resolution solicitors, will work alongside your business to rectify your position in the application process.

We will aim to reach an out of court settlement for your company to compensate you for your lost time and financial costs.

Else also offer a range of mediation and alternative dispute resolution services if you would rather you settle your matter outside the court room.
