Focused on UK public sector law

Eversheds Sutherland’s UK public sector practices offer focused strategic and transactional services, tailored to your organisation. Public sector entities operate in a highly pressurised environment and are increasingly facing the challenge of providing better service delivery with limited resources.

Against a backdrop of widespread reductions in public spending, British public authorities are being forced to make tough decisions to restrict services. Strategic planning is essential to clear policy direction and striking a balance between political policies and legislative requirements.

Eversheds Sutherland has extensive experience providing legal services to the public sector, including central government, local authorities and other organizations. Many of our lawyers have previously worked in the public sector, so have a clear understanding of your priorities.

We regularly advise on:

  • collaboration with the private sector and third sector (non-profit and voluntary organizations including NGOs, charities and social enterprises)
  • regeneration developments
  • outsourcing and procurement projects
