Public Law

What does it consist of?

The Bufete Buades Law Firm’s Public Law Department provides expert legal advice in the matters of public law, the legal relations of companies, professional and business associations, private individuals and all agents who interact with the different Public Administrations, as well as inter-administrative links.

We provide expert legal advice to public sector entities, in all required matters, with special attention focused on public service providers, the organisation and operation of public organisations, including public and municipal corporations, consortiums, foundations and other instrument companies.

How is this issue managed in our law firm?

We are fully aware that the relations with public administrations require effective consultancy services; we facilitate fluent negotiations and guarantee the defence of our clients’ rights and interests against the extensive powers of the Administration.

Our lawyers regularly provide expert advice in practices linked to regulated sectors and we represent our public and private clients in constitutional proceedings and contentious-administrative proceedings, as well as in public contracting matters at the administrative and procedural level.

Due to the recurrent nature of our professional practice, we have proven experience in the public contracting sector, including the analysis and preparation of administrative specifications, monitoring of the contracting processes and the write-up of the clauses, contracts and all types of contractual documents.

Our professional advice also covers the administrative legal sanctions which have such major importance due to the multiple cases and the importance of the penalty amounts and other punitive measures derived from administrative actions.
