Clear advice on public sector legal issues.

We work closely with over a hundred public sector organisations throughout the UK, and understand the particular issues they face.

The public sector is facing unprecedented challenges. In the climate of austerity it is under enormous pressures in terms of funding and sustainability. We have been working within the sector for many years and with over eighty specialists, have one of the biggest public sector teams in Scotland.

We’re acutely aware of the public accountability, the reputational risks, the political and media sensitivities and the overarching policy issues the sector faces.

We have a strong focus on the sector and know how important it is to get it right and get it right first time.

We’ve helped many clients effectively re-invent themselves for the future, where appropriate, drawing on our private sector experience to achieve this.

We thoroughly enjoy working with our clients in the public sector and appreciate the extremely valuable service they provide whilst ensuring that public money is apportioned appropriately against a backdrop of intense scrutiny and accountability. We give excellent value for money by adhering to competitive and transparent fee proposals whilst also looking for more efficient ways in which to provide legal services, spreading cost risk and offering greater certainty and transparency.

In addition to providing all of the standard legal services required by the sector, we collaborate with our clients to help them deliver services in ever more efficient ways and support them through the process of change. With sophisticated client relationship management initiatives in place for our major clients, we ensure we deliver the training, free ad hoc advice and secondments which we know they need.
