We support the public sector in reliably fulfilling its tasks.

Public administration faces enormous challenges in order to ensure the state’s ability to act in the future. Public sector services must be organized more efficiently and increasingly outsourced, as more and more administrative positions remain unfilled as a result of demographic developments. While these bottlenecks can be compensated for by increased digitization so that the state can continue to maintain its efficiency, this infrastructure must be created and deployed comprehensively. But digitization must also be driven forward outside of administration and public authorities so that citizens and businesses can benefit from technological change.

A further challenge for the public sector is posed by financial bottlenecks, which considerably restrict the state’s room for maneuver. In view of empty coffers, services must be provided more efficiently, investments must be prioritized and financing must also be made possible outside of budgets.

To ensure that the state can continue to provide services of general interest to its citizens, new and innovative solutions and courses of action are therefore required. This applies in particular to future issues such as the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions, which affects the areas of mobility, energy supply and construction – in other words, classic fields of action for the public sector.

We at KPMG Law support the state and administration in reliably fulfilling their tasks. We combine many years of experience in all aspects of public law with a profound understanding of the organizational structures and processes in public administration and their particularities, also with regard to public perception. Thanks to our close cooperation with KPMG AG Wirtschaftsprüfungsgesellschaft, we are able to offer practicable solutions even for complex issues at the interface between the state and the private sector.

Consulting focus

  • Procurement and financing

    We provide support in designing efficient, value-creating and legally compliant procurement processes. We identify and enable the financing channels that the public sector needs to fulfill its tasks. Our many years of experience in public procurement law, budgetary law, constitutional law, European law, state aid law and subsidy law form the basis for our legally secure solutions and give you the security of always acting within the legally permissible framework. With our combination of business expertise and process-oriented thinking, we achieve the economic goals you have set for yourself.

  • Sustainability

    Reducing greenhouse gas emissions and achieving climate protection targets are tasks of social significance that are also close to our hearts. However, the public sector must not only create the regulatory framework for this, but also be a pioneer in ESG goals itself. From our consulting practice, we know what role models exist for implementing a sustainability agenda, and we bring a wide range of experience from abroad, from the financial markets and from listed companies, from which the public sector can benefit. Our in-depth expertise in environmental law, foreign trade law, public procurement law, labor law, administrative law and from transformation projects enables us to bring about change in line with ESG goals with personal passion and professional strength.

  • Organizational models and digitization

    The public sector is also undergoing a digital transformation. We accompany the change process of the public sector and support the fulfillment of public tasks when new, innovative approaches and technologies are used. We work with you to design efficient and transparent organizational models for the delivery of public services and help you select, design and implement digital administrative processes and business models. With our comprehensive expertise in administrative law, corporate law, transparency law, labor and civil service law, as well as IT and data protection law, we develop holistic solutions for you. Thanks to our extensive experience from large transformation projects in the public sector and close cooperation with practitioners and management consultants, we have developed a profound understanding of the practical aspects of public sector work.

  • Extended workbench

    Our extended workbench concept offers you the possibility to outsource your tasks to KPMG Law on a short-term or long-term basis, in whole or in part. Thanks to our excellent technical expertise, our profound understanding of the practical work of the public sector, our methodological competence, our modern technical solutions, and our extensive experience in mass proceedings, we will be happy to take over your administrative tasks during peak workloads or staff shortages. For example, we support you in the management of subsidies, in legal proceedings, in citizen participation or in project management as a competent, efficient and transparent partner.

  • Administrative procedure

    We represent your interests in state administrative proceedings. We accelerate planning processes and bring major procedures to a successful conclusion with our experienced project management, through the wise exploitation of legal options and through transparency towards all parties involved. With our in-depth expertise in administrative law, planning law, transparency law, commercial law and environmental law, as well as our extensive litigation experience, we are your strong and reliable partner in administrative proceedings of all kinds.
