Anthony Collins Solicitors is pleased to announce its appointment to the UK Government’s Crown Commercial Service (CCS) new £320m wider public sector legal services panel.
It has secured a place on Lot 1 of the panel with over 40 other law firms, which is valued at £70m over the next three years with an option for CCS to extend by a further year.
The CCS panel allows UK public sector organisations to commission legal services across a range of areas including corporate, commercial, procurement, property and construction, litigation, data protection and employment. Commissioners can come from across the public sector including local and regional government, housing associations, education, healthcare, charities and social businesses with the aim of saving money when procuring professional legal services.
The news builds on the firm’s success across a range of different sector panels and appointments and reinforces the firm’s growth in the sectors supporting its three-year strategy to 2021. This is particularly important as the firm opens its new Manchester office in January 2019 to assist with lateral hire recruitment from other North West law firms.
Olwen Dutton, Head of Local Government at Anthony Collins Solicitors, said: “We are delighted to be appointed onto Lot 1 of the CCS legal panel. Our local government team has never been busier, and we’ve had a number of organisations, not just in local government but across the public sector, looking to work with a specialist law firm with a clear purpose to ‘improve lives, communities and society.’ We look forward to profiling our appointment onto CCS further as a way to develop new client relationships.”
NHS England recently reported plans to recruit an ‘army of advisors’ to support GPs, following evidence that approximately half of all appointments were not related to medical conditions.
