Our Government and public sector experience spans the whole local authorities and NHS bodies to major government departments, including the Insolvency Service, HMRC and the Parliamentary Property Services Team, making us a genuine public sector firm of a calibre which is rarely seen outside of the typical expensive “City” law firms.

We have offices in Cambridge, Leicester, Manchester, Milton Keynes, Northampton and Norwich whose specialist government lawyers can assist you in all public sector and government legal issues, including:

  • Property
  • Social housing
  • Insolvency and restructuring
  • Debt collections
  • Commercial agreements
  • Intellectual property
  • Data protection
  • Regulations
  • Litigation and enforcement
  • Employment
  • Planning and construction
  • Finance


Our dynamic public sector solicitors have a broad range of legal expertise, meaning we can draw upon a bespoke team to advise you on the largest of projects, from the planning of a new project and use of compulsory purchase powers, right through to the operation and management of facilities.

Whichever area we assist you in, our trusted advisers will provide sound, practical advice to ensure your projects are delivered on time and on budget.
