Staffordshire Legal Services

    From the Public Sector

    As we know all too well, in these austere times public service organisations have to work smarter and differently to try to maintain services, whilst having to manage increased budget pressures. As a result we would like to offer to help save you some money on your external legal expenditure.

    For some types of work a fixed fee can be offered. Our high value hourly rates make total business sense. Please compare our rates to those that you may currently be paying  and decide for yourself.

    If you think we might be able to help, we would be pleased to discuss this further with you.

    Examples include new schools and academy conversions; Estates – the sale, purchase letting and management of property portfolios; Pension Fund – the sale, purchase letting and management of circa £250m property portfolio nationwide consisting of central London and other nationally located office space, industrial parks, distribution centres, numerous retail premises of many leading high street brands; NHS Property – various landlord and tenant matters and general property related advice.

    The team has experience gained in private practice as well as the public sector and currently inputs into district planning agreement consultations on behalf of the Highways Authority and Education Departments.

    The Contracts team provides support across the whole procurement spectrum from small projects below EU thresholds, to large scale £multi-million projects. The team puts a great deal of emphasis on commerciality, team working and strong personable relationships, both amongst the team and with their clients.

    In addition to the drafting and completion of contractual documents, commercial and pragmatic advice is given by the team on all aspects  of the procurement process including state aid, governance and  risk mitigation. The team approach is one of working alongside  and with the client rather than just for the client.

    We are proud to be able to produce and deliver relevant and up to date training for commissioners, procurement staff and contract managers ensuring they are equipped with enough knowledge to know when they would need to involve legal advisors at their critical time of need. 

    The people in the team are a healthy amalgam of legal advisers with both private and public sector experience with varying levels of seniority to provide the right mix for every project, contract, transaction and client requirements.
