During the course of 2010 there were at least 10 High Court cases reported relating to challenges to Public Procurement Exercises. That number appears to be set to increase, as Public Bodies are faced with an increase in complex legislation and regulations, all of which is given an extra gloss by court decisions both here and in Europe.
We work closely with our clients and the Corporate team giving advice which is directed as much at keeping our clients out of the Courts, as it is at dealing with claims when they arise. Forbes Solicitor Robin Stephens has delivered training seminars to clients on procurement litigation.
We have experience if advising both public bodies and contractors on procurement issues, including issues arising from alleged underperformance of a contractor and in contract dispute resolution.
The Dispute Resolution Solicitors at Forbes are well placed to advise both contracting authorities and contractors on the rights and liabilities and options for a challenge to a procurement exercise. Whether this challenge involves a claim for damages or an attempt to stop the process by means of an injunction, our team of Solicitors can help you.

Dear Robin Thank you so much for coming to our rescue again!!

Thank you for what you have done for us, it has been a pleasure working with you - and your advice is always clear, practical and makes lots of sense.
The letter of summary has helped me to compile my defence. Without it, I would have floundered. I am very pleased with the professional service that I have received from Mohassan and Manisha.
I have to say that I've never had a better legal service from anyone and am very grateful for your actions in bringing this to a satisfactory conclusion.
