Public sector procurement is highly regulated and process driven, with access to expert advice vital for public sector organisations to avoid costly and time consuming legal challenges. To ensure that competitors are not given unfair advantages, businesses competing for work from the public sector also need experienced lawyers. From initial advertising to handling requests for information, our specialist team understands your environment and will work with you to provide pragmatic legal advice throughout the process.

what we do...

  • Our experience – advising both the public sector (social care, education, health, government bodies, local authorities, public/private partnerships) and the private sector (from listed plcs to SMEs trying to work with local authorities for the first time). 
  • We regularly act for a number of national central procurement bodies. 
  • One of the largest specialist procurement teams in the Midlands - acting for clients on a national basis. 
  • Specialist advice – on all aspects of the public procurement regime pursuant to the Public Contracts Regulations 2006 and the underlying EU directives. 
  • Innovative solutions - for public body cooperation and other types of shared service arrangements.
