With continual changes to structures and legal frameworks, and ongoing pressures to improve public services while cutting costs, public bodies often find themselves on the front line in the legal arena.
Our multi-disciplinary teams help you anticipate change and achieve demanding public service goals. We create the space you need to deliver your objectives and projects free from legal challenge.
Our public law team is the most experienced in the UK, awarded the highest ranking in its field by independent guides to the legal profession, Chambers and The Legal 500.
Many of our lawyers have worked in the public sector themselves. So they understand the unique culture of public service provision – the key financial, political and professional dynamics.
We are known for working closely and effectively in partnership with all our public sector clients, including their in-house legal teams.
Our expert lawyers work with all parts of the public sector, including central and local government, NHS bodies, non-departmental public bodies, government agencies, educational institutions and regulators.
