Sharpe Pritchard, the London-based firm of public law specialists, has been appointed to the government’s Crown Commercial Service (CCS) Full Service panel for England and Wales following a joint bid with Howes Percival, supported by PwC and Capital Law.
The panel can be used by the ‘wider public sector’, including health, education, local and regional government, emergency services and third sector and social housing organisations.
The announcement follows the firm’s success last year in being appointed as a Tier 1 supplier to CCS’s General Legal Advice Services panel for use by all UK central government ministerial and non-ministerial departments (excluding regulators) and their executive agencies, as part of an innovative consortium with PwC, Howes Percival and HFW.
The Full-Service panel covers a broad range of legal services including commercial, corporate, property and construction, IT, data protection, litigation and public procurement.
The appointment is for three years, with the option to extend. The estimated total value of the panel is £130 million.
Julia Rudin, the Managing Partner at Sharpe Pritchard, said: “We are delighted that our commitment to our public sector client base and the quality and breadth of the services we provide has been recognised by this appointment.
“We very much look forward to continuing our close collaboration with Howes Percival, PwC and Capital Law and delivering integrated expert, efficient and cost-effective legal advice and solutions.”
