Public Tenders

Polibio & Lago Advogados has specialized expertise in public contests, with experience in the largest selection processes ever held in the country. We provide assistance and support throughout the entire public contest process, from analyzing the regulations, requests for clarification, hetero-identification boards, physical aptitude tests (TAF), administrative challenges, and judicial action to defend our clients’ rights and ensure their appointment and taking office.

Whether in public contests to fill permanent positions or to create a reserve list, at the federal, state, or municipal levels, our specialized P&L service is combating illegalities committed by the government, such as arbitrariness in disqualifying candidates throughout the phases of the contest or at the time of appointment, undue restrictions in the regulations, recognition of unlawful outsourcing, preterition of successful candidates in the contests due to the irregular occupation of vacant positions, among others.
