Bevan Brittan has been appointed to the Crown Commercial Service (CCS) Wider Public Sector legal services panel.
The panel enables organisations in health, education, local and regional government, emergency services, third sector and social housing to access law firms providing a wide range of expert legal services.
Bevan Brittan has been appointed to two nationwide lots in England and Wales:
Full Service (Lot 2)
- Full range of legal services including public law, commercial, corporate, IT, data protection, litigation and public procurement, dispute resolution, banking and finance and tax matters
Property and Construction (Lot 3)
- All aspects of real estate including acquisition, disposal, development and investment, real estate finance, landlord and tenant matters, construction and infrastructure projects and real estate and construction litigation.
The estimated combined value of the two lots is £170 million.
Andrew Tobin, Partner and Head of Commercial and Infrastructure at Bevan Brittan, said:
“We are delighted that Bevan Brittan has been appointed to two national lots on this important legal panel and that the CCS has recognised the quality and breadth of services we provide.
“The firm has a nationwide reputation for advising a wide range of public sector clients particularly in local government, health and social housing. This panel gives clients across the public sector spectrum the ability to appoint the lawyers most experienced in their markets.”
The appointment is for three years with an option to extend for one year. Bevan Brittan’s appointment runs alongside its appointment to the CCS General Legal Advice Service panel for Central Government in March 2017.
