National law firm Bevan Brittan has been appointed to a prestigious panel that provides legal advice to public sector bodies across the UK.

The firm has been named as a supplier on Crown Commercial Service’s RM6240 Public Sector Legal Service. The framework will be available to public sector buyers from across the UK including health, education, local and regional government, non-departmental public bodies, emergency services, third sector and social housing organisations.

Crown Commercial Service (CCS) supports the public sector to achieve maximum commercial value when procuring common goods and services. In 2021/22, CCS helped the public sector to achieve commercial benefits equal to £2.8 billion - supporting world-class public services that offer best value for taxpayers.

David Hutton, Partner and Head of Local and Central Government at Bevan Brittan said: “Public sector organisations need legal partners that understand their sector and the challenges and demands they face, coupled with the expertise to help them deliver services today and invest in infrastructure for tomorrow.

“The appointment to CCS’s public sector legal services framework enables us to continue to offer our services to a wide range of public sector clients and builds on our track record of working with public sector clients cross the UK.”

Bevan Brittan has been named to both the full service provision and general service provision lots in the framework. Under the full service provision lot, Bevan Brittan will be providing legal advice in 16 areas including administrative and public law, data protection, contracts, dispute resolution, pensions, property and energy. Under general service provision lot, legal specialisms include social housing, child law, planning, employment and mental health law.

Bevan Brittan was previously one of the suppliers on the RM3788 Wider Public Sector Legal Services agreement, which is being replaced by RM6240 Public Sector Legal Service. The firm is also a supplier on CCS’s central government legal services panel as part of an innovative consortium with Sharpe Pritchard and Howes Percival.

The latest positive news for Bevan Brittan builds on a strong 2021/22 for the firm, which recorded its eighth consecutive year of growth last year and has already recruited eight new Partners to its expanding business this year.
