Public Law and Public Procurement

Public entities are obliged to comply with “Código dos Contratos Públicos” (Public Procurement Code), and private entities need to fulfill their obligations accordingly whenever providing services to public entities.

Public entities can benefit from legal advice within the process of preparing public contracts (proposals, specifications to be included in the contracts), and private entities may benefit from legal assistance in order to comply with formal requirements of public procurement procedures
