If you require Scots law input on any opportunities which arise in the public sector, we would be delighted to speak with you.

We are an independent Scottish law firm.  We work regularly with other firms in the UK and beyond. We are accustomed not just in working in partnership with others, but also in tendering with them, and our team is enthusiastic to provide input into any tenders and legal framework opportunities.

Benefits we bring to you 

We have one of the largest public sector teams in Scotland, with over 90 specialists, and we serve over 100 public sector clients. We are on the Scottish and UK Government Panel (the Scottish equivalent of the CCS Framework). We act for public sector clients across Government and Local Authorities, the Education Sector and for many other organisations.

Current clients include the Ministry of Defence, the Home Office, the DWP, HMRC, the Ministry of Justice, HM Passport Office, the HSE and the Scottish Government.

Expert, efficient and cost effective legal advice

We are a full service firm and so will be able to support you across all public sector clients' requirements.

We help our clients by providing competitive and clear fee structures, and are confident that our approach to feeing will be compatible with your requirements and those of your clients

Commitment to the public sector

Our team has been providing commitment, clear advice and bespoke services to the public sector for decades. We use this experience to drive improvements and to look for more efficient ways in which to provide legal services.  We employ high level people directly from the public sector with hands-on experience of the challenges our clients are required to meet. We also invest in specialised technology to help us deliver solutions in the right way for our clients.

We are appointed to the Legal Services Framework operated by Crown Commercial Service. The Framework can be used by any public sector organisation across the UK. We are the only directly-appointed independent Scottish law firm
