Our team

In these uncertain times, public bodies are facing acute pressures to maintain and improve the quality of public services against the backdrop of austerity measures, saving money and balancing budgets.

In an age of rising expectations and diminishing resources, the focus is on transforming public services by innovating, generating income and creating prosperous communities. At the same time, public bodies must still meet their statutory duties and demands for more accountability and transparency.

Our team of public law specialists, most of whom have worked in-house, can help you address these challenges and ensure that reforms are robust enough to manage risk and survive public scrutiny.

From procuring different ways of delivering services to best practice strategies for decision-making and procedural compliance, we work closely with public bodies across England and Wales.

With our public law expertise, we are a supplier on several public sector frameworks, including Crown Commercial Service, Orbis Public Law and National Procurement Service for Wales.
