Competition & Procurement
Hannes Snellman’s competition practice regularly advises clients on critical competition law issues in transactions, commercial agreements and day-to-day business practices. The issues are often complex and extend beyond domestic borders. Our competition practice has an exceptionally broad experience of both international and domestic cases involving public and private antitrust enforcement, merger control, state aid and regulatory proceedings. Our expertise covers the full spectrum of both domestic and EU competition law, including the identification and assessment of competition concerns, preventing them through compliance programmes, and if necessary, representing our clients before authorities, courts or arbitral tribunals.
Hannes Snellman has unrivalled experience of complex public procurements, including competitive dialogues. A contracting party may be forced to rearrange the tender procedure, change its procurement decision, pay financial compensation or be rejected completely if it does not follow the tender invitation to the letter. With advice from our team these pitfalls and other procedural errors can be avoided. We advise on complex procurements and also support companies in tender procedures by outlining strategies, preparing bids, and assisting in contract negotiations. We have represented clients in more than 100 public procurement court proceedings, placing us as the leading practice in the Nordic region and Russia.
Hannes Snellman also has substantial experience of PPP projects, as part of our Infrastructure & Energy practice.
