How may we help?
Bech-Bruun employs some of the leading Danish experts on procurement law, specialising in Defence procurement and contracts, and we render advice on all aspects of procurement law in this relation. Our advisory services cover a wide range of sectors such as weapons manufacturing, aeroplanes, helicopters, trucks, constructions and infrastructure.

Our clients are Danish and international players in connection with their involvement in tender processes, preparation of tender offers, compliance with suitability requirements and conformity as well as tender optimisation. Our advisory services concern direct offers as well as international contracts.

We have extensive experience with legal proceedings concerning procurement law disputes, representing clients before Danish and EU courts as well as before the Danish Complaints Board for Public Procurement.

Tender procedures and the conclusion of contracts in the area of Defence and security are particularly governed by the Defence Directive, and the area is strongly impacted by significant economical and political interests. Against this backdrop, the players face particular requirements, and in this relation the object of the public procurement rules is to ensure that competition on EU tenders is fair and transparent.

The focus on public procurement rules has increased markedly in recent years, owing to considerably increased competition among players. This increases the requirements to national authorities regarding compliance with public procurement rules and the ensuring of legal, fair and relevant contractual terms. Matters that are continuously being tried through proceedings before complaints boards and courts.
