Public Procurement

The firm’s legal team has extensive experience in advising on the public procurement laws. The firm has also vast experience in dealing with public procurement disputes and has successfully represented many procuring agencies and has also acted for parties bidding for tenders in relation to projects of strategic national importance.

We have reviewed the tendering process for the project for hiring consultants by the National Bank of Pakistan which involved careful interpretation and observance of the Public Procurement Rules, 2004 and the Procurement of Consultancy Services Regulations, 2010.

We have also advised Deutsche Bank AG on their global template documentation for tendering and procurement in Pakistan, including the Request for Proposal and general and special terms and conditions, guarantee forms, as well as form of contract document for use by the bank for tendering of construction and security services.

We have also reviewed the procurement documentation for the State Bank of Pakistan, and have advised the State Bank of Pakistan on interpretation and application of the Public Procurement Rules, 2004.
