Comment: This recommended public procurement practice can look back on a successful year after asserting itself against competing firms on several occasions in public sector competitions. For instance, GvW is advising the federal government on the much-discussed federal infrastructure company (public knowledge). This success can be primarily traced back to the practice’s dedicated, interdisciplinary advice (interfaces e.g. to state aid and tax law besides IP/IT), together with a recently optimized, leaner cost structure, due in part to the departure of two partners the previous year. With this setup, GvW successfully sets itself apart from boutiques and large firms. The firm also draws strength from its years of experience in IT procurement. The continuous expansion of its client base to include more hospitals shows that it is also well established in the healthcare sector.
Strengths: Strong cooperation between practices.
Recommended: Dr. Ingrid Reichling (“excellent”, competitor), Dr. Bettina Meyer-Hofmann.
