At Sharpe Pritchard we advise numerous central government departments, agencies and non-departmental public bodies on a wide range of major public sector projects and services.
Our understanding of the economic and political challenges facing governmental bodies makes Sharpe Pritchard uniquely placed to advise on the legal implications of major projects, achieving practical solutions and minimising risk.
We work with organisations across the UK and have been appointed to a number of approved procurement panels, including the GLS/GPS legal services framework under which we provide IT, telecoms, media, e-commerce and general commercial services.
Whether our clients are embarking on a major restructuring or technology procurement project, seeking economies via shared services or undergoing a major outsourcing or procurement, the solicitors in our projects team are known for their innovative approach.
As agencies become more innovative in designing new ways of working, it is vitally important to ensure that all activities are in line with employment law regulations, good corporate governance and human rights legislation.
Our lawyers participate in the Government Legal Service training programme. We regularly deliver lectures and run workshops on topics of interest to our central government clients – click here for current training courses.

“My team have gone out their way to comment to me how well run the procurement was from start to finish. Indeed, [the Project Director] has used the word ‘exemplary’. So, it’s a well done from me and I’m not sure how often you get feedback from suppliers…. but it’s also a genuine ‘thank you’ from myself and [Supplier].” Vice president at a supplier company following conclusion of a central government procurement
