Embarking on entrepreneurial activities may require the prior grant of often complex permissions or the conclusion of an agreement governed by public law. The same applies to the continuance of or advancements in commercial activity.

This holds true especially for restricted markets where access is pre-determined by grants of a limited number of licences. Examples for such markets in Germany are the public healthcare sector and the provision of social services.

We support our clients in gaining the necessary permissions or contracts, for example in context of public-private partnerships or from “Public Safety Authorities and Organisations” (BOS). We also support our clients in contractual negotiations governed by the German social security code (SGB V).

We furthermore advise public authorities on defending against unfounded applications, especially such that would impede fair competition or the efficient delivery of public services.
