Public sector

Our clients work under constant scrutiny to deliver critical public services. They demand top notch legal advice, and that's what we provide.

We've been advising the public sector for over 20 years. Our team work with central government, local government, blue light services and a diverse mix of other public bodies across the UK, advising across the full range of legal services from day-to-day business as usual matters through to supporting on the most complex of public projects.

Our extensive experience means we understand the nuances of advising the public sector and the need to provide pragmatic, commercial advice. We have finely honed our way of working to respond with speed and agility, combining technology and project management with strong legal teams to support even the most complex of projects efficiently and cost effectively.
