The role of the in-house public sector lawyer has changed dramatically over recent years and continues to develop. Our approach is to support clients in achieving their objectives, provide solutions to their problems and to appreciate the environment in which they operate.
The interaction of limited budgets, new decision making structures, delivery frameworks and greater scrutiny set ever higher levels of expectation and demand. Dealing with these challenges requires strong management as well as sound technical application of the law.
There are many ways in which we support our public sector clients, including:
- training and reviews of current practices
- reliable long term transactional work, such as planning advice, Right To Buy and debt recovery
- advice on complex procurement contracts
- public sector employment
