Bevan Brittan has been appointed to a new legal services framework led by Surrey County Council.

Surrey County Council procured the framework agreement on behalf of itself and Orbis Public Law - the partnership that also comprises the legal service departments of Brighton & Hove City Council, East Sussex County Council and West Sussex County Council.

Bevan Brittan was successful in six lots that it bid for:

  • Lot 1 - adult social care
  • Lot 2 - pensions
  • Lot 4 - commercial law, contracts and procurement, telecoms and IT law, construction law
  • Lot 5 – freedom of information, GDPR, monitoring officer, local government law, information law and media
  • Lot 6 - environment, highways, planning, property and housing
  • Lot 7 - litigation including civil, criminal, environmental health, licensing and housing, employment and contentious construction

The £60m framework agreement providing legal and other services will also be available for use by the district and borough councils within the counties where Orbis Public Law operates. The term of the agreement is three years plus a three-year optional extension period (total six-year term).

David Hutton, Head of Local Government at Bevan Brittan, said:

“We are delighted to be among the law firms and chambers appointed to this important legal framework, and look forward to continue working with the councils and other authorities that are supported by Orbis Public Law.

“Local government continues to face a significant range of financial and other challenges, and Bevan Brittan has led the way in advising authorities on new investment and revenue generation structures.”
