    Eversheds Sutherland has been appointed to a new Crown Commercial Services (CCS) legal panel for the Wider Public Sector.

    The Wider Public Sector Legal Services RM3788 Framework provides a comprehensive range of commercial legal services to all UK public sector contracting bodies. This includes associated bodies such as Devolved Administrations — Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, the Wider Public Sector including Health and Education bodies, Local and Regional Government organisations, Emergency Services and Third Sector organisations.

    Central Government departments can use the Framework if their requirement relates to transactional property or litigation work where the value per transaction is less than £20k.

    Eversheds Sutherland was assessed on a number of quality criteria including: the quality of legal solutions; the approach to ensuring customer satisfaction and ensuring best practice through a proactive review of lessons learned and a detailed case study of previous advice delivered to a public sector client covering Eversheds Sutherland’s ability to strategise, bring innovation and share knowledge.

    The Eversheds Sutherland team was led by employment Partner Simon Tytherleigh. The panel appointment, which is for a two-year term, is in addition to Eversheds Sutherland’s existing appointments on the CCS General Legal Services Framework and Rail Legal Services Framework. 

    Bridgette Wilcox, Eversheds Sutherland’s Head of Public Sector, commented:

    ‘We are delighted to have been appointed to this new Public Sector Crown Commercial Services legal panel. In addition to our existing public sector contracts, this reinforces the strength and depth of our commercial practice and our strong relationship with the UK government which has been forged over many years.’
