Who's Who Legal Government Contracts

Dr Totis Kotsonis is a competition lawyer recognised for his particular expertise in public procurement, State aid and regulatory law. He is a partner at Eversheds Sutherland, one of the largest international law firms in the world with 63 offices in 30 jurisdictions. Totis leads the firm’s procurement and state aid practice, which spans all major sectors, including aerospace and defence, transport, energy and infrastructure. He advises clients on both contentious and non-contentious matters.

Totis has been recognised in legal directories for being “extremely efficient and co-operative”, his “depth of knowledge and ability to get straight to the point” and for combining “an academic command of procurement law with a refreshingly pragmatic and commercial sensibility".

He has advised, among others, major utility companies, including ports and airport operators in the UK and elsewhere in Europe, multinational aerospace and defence companies as well as a  number of European governments and the European Commission.

Totis writes and speaks regularly on public procurement, state aid, and EU regulatory matters and in that context has been interviewed by news agencies, broadcasters and the press.  Since June 2016 he has been a regular commentator on Brexit and its implications for UK public procurement, compliance with state aid rules as well as in relation to aviation and energy regulation.

In July 2015, Totis was appointed a member of the European Commission’s stakeholder expert group on public procurement.  The group is tasked with assisting the European Commission in shaping the public procurement policy of the European Union.

He has a PhD from the London School of Economics and worked in another international law practice for 13 years before joining Eversheds in 2014.

WWL says: Totis Kotsonis is renowned for his unparalleled knowledge of EU state aid and procurement rules. One peer says, “He is very well known in the market and very focused. A star.”
