  • Managing the Business Failure of a Key Contractor by Michael Mousdale
    If a key contractor was to face an insolvency, the public authority needs to have a strategy for responding to a failure or a rescue package, to consider how it can continue to meet relevant statutory duties (whether by transfer of contract or bringing in house). This will involve an understanding of the types and consequences of insolvency, the procurement position governing a replacement and key matters such as TUPE and pensions.
  • Litigating During the Pandemic: Working with the Court System by Sarah Erwin-Jones
    What guidance has been issued by the Court and Tribunal Services most likely to be used by local authorities, arms length bodies and government sector organisations. Illustrating some practical hurdles for litigants raised by the Government's current lock down, sometimes with reference to our own experience, and suggest solutions in the short, medium and longer term to those challenges.
