It is impossible nowadays to offer operational legal counsel in the various fields of public and administrative law without a tried and tested administrative dispute resolution practice. Gide represents both companies and administrations every day, before all jurisdictions, whether first instance or appeal cases, actions on the merits or summary hearings.
Gide acts for claimants and defendants alike in all types of administrative disputes: legality of administrative decisions, contractual disputes and claims for damages.
Our firm is particularly well regarded in litigation relating to public contracts, the responsibility of public persons and urban planning. We are also highly competent on major pre-contractual emergency proceedings and have developed a rare practice in public procurement disputes before the ordinary courts.
Finally, Gide possesses recognised expertise in urban planning disputes, whether on planning documents, planning permission or authorisations prior to commercial development.
