A growing number of public sector tasks are carried out by private companies. This requires a close and excellent cooperation between the parties. At the same time, the development trend is towards an increased focus on the public-private forms of cooperation – PPP and PFI. In addition, this area of law remains full of uncertainties and rapidly developing deviations from the known norms.
