Public-private partnerships and concessions

We provide full-range legal assistance involving preparing and running undertakings carried out by public-private partnerships and under concessions for works and services. Our advisory is rendered to both public and private partners and we particularly:

  • develop entire legal structures for ventures based on the sector specifics of a given transaction,
  • analyse ventures in accordance with both Polish and EU laws, including state aid regulations, public procurement law, and also opportunities for ventures to be carried out using EU funds (hybrid ventures),
  • identify the optimum form for a venture and the investor selection procedure, including rules on setting up public-private companies,
  • advise on establishing structures for consortia of private entities and on relations with subcontractors or co-operating entities,
  • draw up tender documentation for the entire process,
  • develop negotiating strategy based on competitive dialogue rules or negotiating procedures,
  • run dialogues and negotiations,
  • draw up and negotiate public-private partnership agreements and concession contracts, and represent clients in appeals before the National Appeal Chamber and common and administrative courts.
