Pub­lic Ten­ders / Pub­lic Ten­ders in the IT Sector

LAYER 8 advis­es pub­lic cor­po­ra­tions and insti­tu­tions on the exe­cu­tion of sub­mis­sions or com­pa­nies on the par­tic­i­pa­tion in pub­lic ten­ders accord­ing to can­ton­al pro­cure­ment law or fed­er­al pro­cure­ment law. 
In the com­plaint pro­ce­dure (sub­mis­sion com­plaints) we rep­re­sent com­pa­nies and pub­lic author­i­ties as par­ties or lead their co-coun­sel in the background. 
Spe­cial­ized know-how for IT com­pa­nies.

The part­ners of LAYER 8 have rel­e­vant train­ing and expe­ri­ence in the restruc­tur­ing of IT com­pa­nies, merg­ers & acqui­si­tions in the ITC sec­tor, the for­ma­tion, liq­ui­da­tion or dis­so­lu­tion of com­pa­nies, or con­flict res­o­lu­tion among part­ners or shareholders.

We also advise you on start-up or spin-off foun­da­tions, accom­pa­ny you in the nego­ti­a­tion phase with investors and, if required, take over the com­mu­ni­ca­tion strat­e­gy for you. We also sup­port you in the choice of loca­tion and settlement.

Main­te­nance con­tracts, hard­ware and soft­ware contracts

We sup­port you in deter­min­ing your needs. In doing so, we incor­po­rate our assess­ment and clar­i­fy whether the offered upgrades and new acqui­si­tions are nec­es­sary at all. Thanks to our rel­e­vant and long-stand­ing exper­tise in the field of hard­ware / soft­ware, we can advise you efficiently. 
If your sup­port ser­vice provider or your IT ser­vice provider does not ful­fill its oblig­a­tions (e.g. vio­la­tions of main­te­nance win­dows, defec­tive deliv­ery, poor per­for­mance, etc.), we enforce your claims and, if nec­es­sary, reach the com­pe­tent court for you. Since we speak the lan­guage of the tech­ni­cians, we can quick­ly and suc­cess­ful­ly grasp your situation. 
Com­pa­ny settlement 

LAYER 8 offers rel­e­vant exper­tise in the area of IT com­pa­ny relo­ca­tion, includ­ing site selec­tion, nego­ti­a­tions with the munic­i­pal­i­ties or the can­ton. We also sup­port you in back­ground checks of man­age­ment per­son­nel. We assess oper­a­tions to change com­pa­ny struc­tures (merg­er, demerg­er, change of legal form, etc.) and advise you on com­pa­ny suc­ces­sion. In the case of tax law issues, LAYER 8 can draw on experts from its net­work if desired.
