Public law

BDO supports the public sector, for example in the context of legislation, with questions around responsibility and authority, during mergers of public entities and in privatisation deals.

We also advise private individuals on selected aspects of public law, for instance in connection with the realisation of construction projects, private-public partnership (PPP) projects or with regard to the provision of public services.

Environmental law

We provide support on legal issues related to nature and the environment, with a particular focus on contaminated sites and noise protection.

Public construction law

Our specialists support you with all matters related to public construction law, including, but not limited to, preservation of historical buildings. We guide public sector organisations through legislation and the planning permission process. We also advise private individuals wishing to object to proposed construction projects.

Public contract law (procurement)

We advise public sector and private organisations that provide public services on questions around procurement. We clarify whether public contract law provisions apply and, if so, which ones. Our professionals can provide support to awarding bodies or applicants in the tender process.
