Public matters newsletter - September 2014

17 September 2014

We have had a very busy summer with two new partners joining the Government and Infrastructure team. Stephen Matthew is based in our London office and Lynne Rathbone is in Exeter. We are all really excited to welcome them to our team and they would, of course, be delighted to meet as many of you as is possible over the coming months.

Anyway in this months public matters we have articles on the end of Industrial and provident societies, the Public Services Social Value Act, a very interesting case involving Boris Johnson (R (on the application of Core Issues Trust) v Transport for London), the issue of subsistence payments to NRPF families and a roundup of some very important cases for the public sector.

Claims Club London office

We are pleased to invite you to join us for our popular Claims Club, which will take place in-person in our London office. With a focus on risk in the public sector, as well as discussion on the topics outlined below we are hoping there will be time for Mr Jonathan Cook to don his sparkly jacket for a short festive quiz! Following the session there will be an opportunity for an informal catch up for those who can stay on.
