fwp provides up-to-date advice to the public sector. The advisory services include all areas which resulted from the liberalisation of numerous sectors, such as the transport and energy sector, but also challenges arising from the development of the public sector towards digitisation, changes in the public health sector, implementation of climate policy measures and all the requirements resulting therefrom. In this context, we provide advice to various regional administrative entities such as different federal provinces, towns and municipalities, social security institutions and chambers.

Furthermore, we support and provide advice to numerous companies held by the public authorities in different legal forms, in particular in the areas of health, mobility and energy. These institutions face the particular challenge of having to operate at the interface between market and state and are confronted with various special legal frameworks, in particular in the areas of procurement law, state aid law, special administrative law and special organisation law, data security, data protection and many more.

In addition, fwp is a sought-after partner when it comes to public procurement as well as public private partnerships (PPPs).
