Browne Jacobson has been appointed on to London Borough’s Legal Alliance (LBLA) legal services framework after successfully bidding for their core legal work.

The new three year contract which has a one year option to extend and is worth potentially £16m in fees, commenced on 8 July 2022. It replaces the Boroughs’ existing panel arrangement. The appointment will see the firm advise on areas such as regeneration, litigation, commercial and real estate.

LBLA is a collaborative partnership which was established in 2009 and is made up of local authority legal teams across a majority of London Boroughs including London Boroughs of Bexley, Brent, Bromley, Camden, Ealing, Enfield, Hackney, Hammersmith & Fulham, Haringey, Havering, Hillingdon, Islington, Newham, Redbridge, Tower Hamlets, Waltham Forest, Royal Borough of Greenwich, the Royal Borough of Kensington & Chelsea, the City of London Corporation, HB Public Law (the London Boroughs of Harrow, Barnet, and Hounslow, Aylesbury Vale District Council, and Slough Borough Council) and the London Fire Brigade. It brings together local authorities who are leading the way in innovative and strategic procurement practices and delivering best value service to clients and local residents.

Peter Ware, head of the government sector at Browne Jacobson said: 

“It is fantastic we have won a place on this prestigious panel again, following a highly competitive tender process. We are delighted that we have been given the opportunity to re-establish and strengthen our relationship with clients in London and the South East, as well as help them to achieve their key objectives by providing innovative legal solutions across a broad range of services in a timely and cost- effective way.

“The appointment endorses our position in the market as a go to firm for providing high quality strategic legal advice to leading organisations within the public sector.

“We look forward to working with and supporting LBLA over the next four years and helping them navigate the legal complexities that post-Brexit and post-Pandemic Britain may throw up.”

Parveen Akhtar, Director of Law (Monitoring Officer) at Bi-Borough Legal Services (Kensington and Chelsea Council and Westminster City Council) said: “'As the LBLA continues to grow and thrive it is important for us to harness the expertise and support of the firms that have made it onto our framework. Given the pressures faced by local authorities across the country we are particularly pleased to have secured, once again, quality services at highly competitive rates.”

The firm’s specialist public law solicitors work across all areas of the government sector, offering tailored advice to central government, local authorities, fire services, the social care sector, arm’s length government bodies and the social housing sector. Its client list includes over 200 local authorities, 50 NHS bodies and 10 central government departments and bodies.
