We are public procurement experts.
We collaborate with public sector bodies to allow them to buy works, goods and services in a manner that achieves value for money and complies with EU and national law.
Our legal experience allows us to deliver added value through our ability to draft bespoke or amend standard contract forms and advise on both procurement and contractual matters.
Value for Money
In an era of increasing budgetary restrictions and public oversight of public sector spend, value for money needs to be at the heart of all public procurement processes. Quigg Golden understands the challenges that the public sector faces. We work with public bodies and publicly funded organisations to develop public procurement solutions that address economic concerns in the short and long term.
In the short term, our legal experience allows us to draft contracts and framework agreements that give public organisations the ability to monitor and enforce compliance with the tender commitments made by suppliers. In the longer term we have experience of facilitating our clients’ understanding of the value of any particular procurement from a whole life perspective.
Our experience of bringing legal challenges to procurement processes for suppliers gives us a unique insight into the areas of procurement processes most susceptible to challenge. No successful challenges have been made on processes we have run.
The majority of Quigg Golden’s staff are legally qualified and all have developed a thorough understanding of the law surrounding public procurement. We pride ourselves on being at the forefront of developments in EU procurement law and national practice in the UK and Ireland.
In addition to procurement law we are also experienced in advising on contract law matters. Procurement is a holistic process spanning the journey from the identification of a need through to the decommissioning of works or the termination of a service. Our ability to advise our clients on the legal issues that may arise throughout this journey differentiates us considerably from our competitors. This experience is invaluable in both proactive and reactive manners. We can be proactive in ensuring that all tender and contract documentation is drafted to a high standard and can react quickly if any legal issues arise either pre or post-award of contract.
