            This event will detail the law and practical steps needed to respond to these threats and equip you with vital knowledge. Critically, you will be made aware of your obligations from the receipt of letters during the standstill period, to measures in eliminating challenges once issued in Court.

            Our specialist team has successfully advised a wide range of public bodies in the defence of procurement challenges. Key members of the team will deliver this briefing and be available to answer your questions.

            Issued to be discussed include:

            • understanding the time limits within which challengers must bring claims;
            • disclosure requirements and how to respond to "fishing expeditions";
            • considering your position and tactics for responding to the threat of challenge;
            • assessing the strength of a potential challenge;
            • options available once a challenge has been issued; and
            • practical steps to protect your organisation from procurement challenges.
