Regulatory measures, government intervention and public sector spending are omnipresent in today’s economic climate. A large variety of public law entities intervene to implement these measures. Allen & Overy’s public law practice covers all aspects of public economic law.
Understanding how dealing with public law entities may be different from dealing with private entities and the impact of regulation have always been an important aspect of business life. It is even more important with governments cutting costs, privatising and selling assets, turning to or away from public-private partnerships as well as increasing public sector spending in some areas.
Our areas of expertise include:
- administrative contracts
- freedom of information
- government-owned assets
- human rights
- permits and authorisations
- public and mixed entities/structures
- public law litigation
- public-private partnerships
