How can we help?

Public Procurement

Risk management


Risks associated with the procurement process should be kept under regular review and be proactively managed by the contracting authority throughout the process until contract award. We work closely with our clients to ensure the associated risks of any procurement are identified at the earliest stage, and properly managed. Our contentious experience ensures we minimise or avoid such risks. 

Risks associated with the commercial terms also need to be identified and allocated to a specific party. Our procurement solicitors prepare risk matrices for clients of the headline risks associated with a contract and facilitate the client’s discussions with bidders as to the most cost-effective allocation of risk.

“I was so impressed with the service that we received. We have subsequently found out that, as we suspected, this was the replacement for a very significant framework. That makes the result immeasurably more important to us. I have always said that Clarkslegal was a first class firm and this result, together with the manner of the service provided, admirably underpins my long held view.”


We engaged Clarkslegal to support us with a procurement issue. They quickly understood our position and represented us effectively within challenging timescales. I found their service to be thorough, professional and responsive.”
