Public Law & Environment
Gide’s public and environmental law team was set up 25 years ago, with some 20 specialised lawyers now working out of our Paris office. We offer an operational service to businesses, administrations and major public bodies.
Gide acts on all business segments that have a public administrative law component: major transactions between administrations and companies thanks to our specialists in public procurement contracts and public-private partnerships, industry growth thanks to our energy, environment and sustainable development specialists, public and private real estate operations thanks to our specialists in public property, urban planning and development.
All the lawyers of our public and administrative law department enjoy in-depth knowledge of how the public sector works, and represent Gide clients every day before administrative courts.
Our clients appreciate our constant search for new and innovative solutions, our pragmatic approach and our determination in seeing their projects through, far removed from the stiffness that is often associated with public and administrative law cases.
