Experience and expertise within procurement law

We have broad experience representing foreign tenderers submitting tenders for contracts awarded by Danish public authorities and assist in connection with complaints. Our many years' experience advising Danish public authorities in their role as contracting entities has given us in-depth insight into the terms, requirements and possibilities characterising Danish procurement processes. This knowledge is included as a valuable advantage in our advice to foreign tenderers. And when expertise within procurement law is not sufficient alone, we ensure the right solution via our specialist competencies within other legal areas, e.g. IT law, building and construction, employment law and commercial contracts.

Horten is also among the law firms in Denmark conducting the most cases before the Complaints Board for Public Procurement. We have a broad network in the area and are in close contact with the Danish Competition and Consumer Authority.
