Since 1996, our law firm has been active in the field of public procurement law. With our eight partners Johannes Schramm, Matthias Öhler, Georg Zellhofer, Gregor Stickler, Andreas Gföhler, Hannes Pesendorfer, Christian Gruber, Michael Weiner and about 40 employees, we are one of the largest specialist teams in the market and actively shape our field of expertise through numerous publications and participation in many fundamental decisions.

In practice, we implement procurement projects, represent our clients in review procedures and assist them in making important decisions and in sensitive situations. In doing so, we advise the federal government, states and municipalities, the European Commission, as well as numerous public corporations and companies, from medium-sized companies to international corporations in all questions of public procurement law and related areas of law.

Twenty years at the top confirm each day that we went the right way in 1996. At that time we entered a nearly unknown terrain. The field was new, and its complex interrelations with civil law were just beginning to develop. As a “procurement lawyer of the first hour”, we gave our law firm a knowledge advantage that still sets us apart from the competition.

Today we continue this pioneering work day by day. The knowledge advantage of hundreds of procurement projects, review procedures and expert opinions allows us to handle many tasks very efficiently. Together with our clients and experts from other disciplines, we develop new and innovative models, whether in the field of public-private partnerships, life-cycle models, framework agreements or spin-offs. In doing so, we bridge the gap between science and practical solutions.
