Public Commercial Law

Public Commercial Law

Froriep offers legal support in all areas of public commercial law. From public procurement, energy law and environmental law to issues involving customs and export control, product recalls and health insurance, we can field unrivalled expertise, together with a forensic understanding of the Swiss regulators and how they work.

In the area of public procurement, we regularly advise on structuring tenders, including all the regulatory requirements, licensing procedures and approvals. When issues arise with unsuccessful tenders, we can and do represent our clients before the courts if they seek to have the award annulled.

In customs law, we advise clients on what can and cannot be legally exported and on the legal framework of cross-border payments, representing their cases before the authorities or courts as necessary. We advise clients on all aspects of environmental law with a focus on the limitation of emissions and the clean-up of polluted sites, as well as advising governmental agencies on complex environmental matters and regulations.

In the heavily regulated area of health care and pharmaceuticals, we help manufacturers and service providers to comply with the full range of Swiss rules and regulations. In the energy sector, we help with tenders and compliance, frequently advising global businesses on the Swiss regulations around energy supply, distribution and trading.
