We are delighted that for the next four years we can continue to work together to provide the highest quality, cost-effective legal services to our members and the addition of Anthony Collins Solicitors will add to the strength and depth of these innovative arrangements”
Head of Local Government at Anthony Collins Solicitors, Olwen Dutton said:
“We’re pleased to be re-joining EM Lawshare as its newest partner firm. Our Local Government practice has grown considerably over the past year with our ability to offer legal support across the range of a council's requirements; we look forward to supporting members who have recognised the benefits of the consortium during a challenging time across all aspects of the public sector.”
