We have provided legal advice to the public sector for over 25 years. We have experts specialising in property, planning, governance, standards, prudential borrowing and investment powers, employment law, TUPE, pensions and tax advice. We also have a dedicated public procurement and state aid team.
Working with our highly rated charities team, we specialise in delivering a 'one stop' service in establishing social enterprises, mutuals, co-operatives, employee led Industrial and Provident societies and Cost Sharing Groups. We are also one of only 7 law firms nationally with a Roll A Parliamentary Agency practice.
We are appointed to numerous public sector frameworks including the Crown Commercial Service (CCS) Legal Services Framework, which permits any public sector body to instruct us without a new procurement process. As part of our commitment to the public sector, we hold memberships of the Procurement Lawyers Association and the Society of Procurement Officers.
