LLG was formed in April 2013 by the merger of the Association of Council Secretaries and Solicitors (ACSeS) and Solicitors in Local Government (SLG), and VWV has been a panel member since its inception.
The framework, which commences on the 1 July, allows over 30 participating local and public authorities to access legal services. Following a highly competitive tender process, VWV has been appointed as a supplier on seven lots including Planning, Property, Employment, Commercial, Civil and Criminal Litigation, General Local Government Matters and Monitoring Officer Support.
LLG and the participating local authorities will be supported by specialist lawyers working in a range of disciplines across VWV's offices in Bristol, London, Watford, and Birmingham.
Client Partner and Head of VWV's Public Sector team Allison Cook commented:
"Our reappointment to this prestigious panel reflects not only the commitment of our internal teams to deliver a 'one stop' service to our local authority clients, but also underpins our reputation within the sector having delivered services to Local Government for over 20 years.
We are delighted with the outcome and greatly look forward to 'representing, promoting and supporting' the interests of LLG and its members over the next four years."
