We recognise that the public sector is one of the most challenging and demanding environments in which to operate: circumscribed by issues of powers, procedural propriety and driven by a mixture of changing policy, political, regulatory and financial considerations.
The drive to renew and invest in public services and infrastructure and to improve efficiency will be achieved through traditional and new forms of procurement. Encouragement is given to collaboration among the public sector and seeking new approaches to service delivery in partnership with the private sector including PFI, PPP, outsourcing, joint ventures and strategic partnering. This will be achieved within an ever changing regulatory framework driven from both within the UK and also from Europe, presenting new compliance challenges and requirements for change.
We can combine the experience and skills of business lawyers, advising on, negotiating, delivering, managing and providing strategic support on complex projects for both commercial operators and public bodies together with expertise in public law, governance, probity and regulatory compliance across a range of sectors.
