Public Procurement Projects Require Proven Skill
In an increasingly complex, fast-moving and dynamic society, governments are routinely and consistently expected to accomplish more and more with less and less. DeCotiis, FitzPatrick, Cole & Giblin, LLP‘s unique, multifaceted Public Procurement and Contracting practice provides the expert knowledge, diverse experience and innovative approaches that can help government entities meet this challenge.

Our approach is hands-on, practical and informed. Our role is to bring whatever expertise is required to bear on a procurement issue to ensure a satisfactory result.

Meeting Challenges With A Collaborative Approach
Facilitating a government project is rarely a straightforward process. It often requires expertise in a number of legal disciplines and requires practitioners to work very closely together, often under significant constraints and time pressures. The scope of the diverse knowledge at DeCotiis, FitzPatrick, Cole & Giblin, LLP, makes this easy and extremely productive. It saves our clients time and money while streamlining the process.
Our public procurement attorneys frequently call upon the expertise of our tax law, real estate and public finance lawyers. Our partners’ breadth and depth of knowledge is an important benefit for our clients. In addition to completing projects more quickly and less expensively, our thinking reflects a broad perspective that draws on a variety of approaches. This enables us to consistently arrive at better, more innovative solutions, and on occasion, to suggest or structure creative solutions to complete a project previously thought to be impossible.
