Central & Local Government
Our cross-firm public sector group has been advising clients in the public sector for over 30 years. Our involvement in the sector means we have experience of working against a shifting policy background and have a comprehensive understanding of the challenges that you may face. We provide our clients with commercial risk analyses and viable solutions, driving their projects to a successful completion.
The public sector has always been integral to our business and we are proud to have a long history of advising local government, central government and non-departmental public bodies on all aspects of their legal work. We currently advise over 70 local authorities and 30 central government clients on all aspects of legal advice.
Our involvement in the evolution of public sector procurement strategies means that we frequently find ourselves at the cutting edge of projects for public bodies. In these circumstances, an understanding of the statutory powers and obligations of the relevant parties is critical in creating structures which achieve the public sector’s objectives and are robust in terms of their powers.
