Public procurement

Members of Monckton Chambers provide suppliers, contracting authorities and utilities with a full range of services, from non-contentious advice during the tender process to representation in highly complex litigation and, where appropriate, mediation.

Monckton Chambers has 34 practitioners specialising in procurement law, dealing with hundreds of sets of procurement instructions each year. We believe our range of procurement experience and expertise surpasses that of any other chambers.

Specific areas of expertise include:

  • Aspects requiring detailed knowledge of EC law
  • Commercial disputes arising from performance of government contracts such as benchmarking, market testing and performance issues
  • Concessions and part B contracts
  • Health service procurement
  • Procurement by EU institutions and outside the EU
  • Project finance and PFI/PPP matters
  • Regeneration schemes
  • Social housing
  • State aid and procurement
  • Utilities procurement

Members of Monckton Chambers have appeared in procurement matters in the High Court, the Court of Appeal and in the European Court of Justice, as well as the courts of Northern Ireland. Members have also been involved in procurement matters in Scotland, where members experienced in public procurement have also been called to the Scottish Bar, and in procurement cases concerning countries outside the EU.

Professional Organisations

Members of Chambers are actively involved with the Procurement Law Association, the ICC Public Procurement Task Force, and are included in the editorial board of the Public Procurement Law Review. Members contribute articles to journals and speak frequently at conferences, including in the US and Europe. Monckton Chambers is also an active partner with Whitepaper Conferences in the production of their annual procurement conference in London, and associated Brussels conferences.
