Public works contracts

Public works contracts between contractors and contracting authorities requires highly qualified construction lawyers with both the knowledge and experience to understand the rules applicable to public works.

We have spent years assisting clients, contractors and contracting public authorities on various public works projects providing cost-effective solutions. We assist contractors from the very early stages of entering into the contract for public works to compiling all necessary information, including in relation to the design, in order for the contract to be profitable.

Public works contracts require specialist drafting due to the complexity of the services to be rendered and the risk of unforeseen circumstances during the works. The FIDIC suite of contracts is important during this stage of public works contracts, as the majority are inspired by such. In particular, FIDIC contracts should be adapted to suit the nuances of the public procurement sector, depending on the particular specifics of the project and adapted to Romanian regulations too.
