Further options for entrepreneurial activity are also offered through public contracts in the areas of supply and service.

Our Legal Services in Public Administration Matters

Full-Service Law Firm in the Field of Public Administration Law

German public administration is an area that involves all legal aspects regulating the relationship between the state and private law subjects and the relationships between public authorities. Our lawyers aim to provide our clients with quality advice, support, and representation to ensure that they can take advantage of their rights. In German procurement law, we support private German and foreign investors in specific models of cooperation, such as in Public-Private-Partnerships (PPP) and during the procurement procedure.

Our lawyers use our offices in Cologne, Düsseldorf and Aachen and our facilities in Berlin, Frankfurt, Hamburg, Munich and Stuttgart to assist nationwide. We deal with regional, national and international clients, and we are well-versed in the necessary legislation across the board. Our lawyers provide legal counsel in English as well as German. If you have any issues regarding public administration, don’t hesitate to get in touch with us today.

Contract Law: Analysis, Drafting and Negotiating

In Germany, the opportunity for companies to engage with public administration through public-private partnerships provides the potential for  enormous financial rewards which means that now may be the perfect opportunity to put your business project into effect. In availing of the required trading licenses and specific permissions, particularly with regard to the growing and complex fields of environmental protection and emission regulation, we will be there to assist you.

Our lawyers advise from the application process to the obtaining of approval. Of course, there are risks involved when working with public authorities but there are also opportunities. Our law firm would like to assist you in this area with comprehensive legal support.

In assessing contracts, our lawyers thoroughly analyse contracts and licences and ensure that our clients are fully aware of their requirements under German law. Contact us today to find out more about our services.

Construction, Real Estate & Public Law

Our lawyers will be by your side during construction and real estate projects in dealings with public administration. Allow our team to oversee your building applications and ensure that they fulfil the application requirements. In locating suitable building sites, our lawyers will ensure that your project is compliant with regional planning, urban land-use planning, and environmental regulations (e.g. nature conservation law and other requirements in environmental law).

Environmental law, in particular, is an area that is growing, which can complicate the situation for private companies looking to work in a partnership with public administration. However, remaining compliant with environmental requirements, and having plans to stay compliant, allows your company to benefit from the opportunities available. Our lawyers oversee such projects on behalf of our clients.

Litigation, Arbitration and Dispute Resolution

Our lawyers are vastly experienced in legal actions before the administrative courts in Germany. Disputes can arise due to many reasons for public-private partnerships or more general dealings with elements of public administration. Our clients benefit from our counsel in the event of (alleged) contract breaches in claims for damages and licence disputes. Such measures allow your company to remain compliant with its legal obligations, and in turn, this prevents legal cases from arising.

Our lawyers are seasoned negotiators and will look to resolve matters outside of court. However, should a case reach the courtroom, our clients can rely on high-quality representation during the case.

Whistleblowing and Compliance

It is always crucial to be legally compliant when starting new projects. Non-compliance can lead to issues concerning public complaints or whistleblowing within the department, administration or company. Whistleblowing often causes reputational damage; however, it can be necessary to uncover law violations such as corruption or poor standards. Designing secure, confidential, effective, and according to industry standards internal mechanisms to contend with grievances is vital.

Ensuring that a company or administration’s whistleblowing requirements are of the correct quality will be even more critical over time. At Schlun & Elseven Rechtsanwälte, our lawyers advise both companies and whistleblowers regarding their options under German law.
