Analysis: Government Contracts

Government Contracts 2015: Analysis

This year, Public Procurement has been renamed Government Contracts for the sixth edition, listing a comprehensive 368 practitioners from 225 firms across 40 countries in this growing area of public law.

Government Contracts 2015: Trends

Public procurement commands ever-increasing attention from the world’s top law firms and lawyers. This owes much to the maturing of the relatively young market and the near constant reforming of its legislation. A new host of policymaking and plurilateral agreements are looking to liberalise the market, which should ensure that its global stock will continue to rise.

Legal Marketplace Analysis

This year, we identify 342 practitioners from 216 firms and 44 countries as the world's leading public procurement lawyers. Allen & Overy leads the way in our research, achieving 10 listings across eight different jurisdictions. Following closely behind are Hogan Lovells and Mayer Brown. Blake Cassels & Graydon, Bird & Bird and Dentons all also perform strongly.

Furhermore, we recognise the 10 most highly regarded individuals in the world and single out the five leading practitioners at the UK bar.

Research: Trends & Conclusions

Who’s Who Legal takes a closer look at developing trends in the global public procurement market.

Most Highly Regarded Firms: Public Procurement 2013

In this section we select the 10 individuals who stand out worldwide this year and the seven firms that field the most lawyers to this edition.

Allen & Overy is the leading firm in our research with nine lawyers featured. These practitioners are based in eight different countries, demonstrating the firm’s impressive international expertise. Following close behind is Ashurst, which fields seven "brilliant" individuals, as does "top" global firm Hogan Lovells. Blake Cassels & Graydon has five “outstanding” lawyers listed, as do Linklaters, the newly merged Norton Rose Fulbright and the "world-class" White & Case.

Research Trends and Conclusions: Public Procurement 2013

Our research reveals that public procurement is becoming increasingly focused on litigious work. This boom in litigation is great for top barristers and large law firms, many of whom have received a steady, if not necessarily well-paid, flow of work from these disputes. But it is not good news for everyone. Many of our respondents have noted an increased specialisation and sophistication of the market, with clients preferring to turn to large and established market players with a strong litigation department, rather than smaller firms.

Most Highly Regarded Firms: Public Procurement 2012

This year we recognise the leading public procurement firms, private practitioners and independent counsel, selected for their expertise and reputation in this field. We have identified the leading ten lawyers from around the world, and four of the world’s most recommended barristers, as a reflection of the distinction between private practice and the Bar and their jurisdictional scope of practice.

Research Trends and Conclusions: Public Procurement 2012

With the benefit of over 15 years research and tens of thousands of votes from clients and privates practitioners, Who’s Who Legal takes a closer look at developing trends in the global public procurement legal marketplace.

Research Trends and Conclusions: Public Procurement 2011

Building on the research from the previous two editions of this publication, Who’s Who Legal analyses votes and interviews from clients and private practitioners the world over to establish a picture of recent trends and developments in public procurement law.

Most Highly Regarded Firms: Public Procurement 2011

In this section we analyse the findings of our research in greater depth to identify the firms and practitioners who stand out worldwide.
