Will was incredibly supportive. He met his deadlines, dealing with last minute amendments very well and responding to the clarifications in a prompt and timely fashion. He was pleasant to deal with and always took the time to explain why he had included something in the Terms and Conditions and what the implications were. He was a real pleasure to work with.
We are experienced in working with clients across the entire authority, whose specific needs are as unique as they are diverse. We are therefore able to draw on our considerable experience to ensure that our advice is tailored to the requirements of each department and the issues they face.
We routinely advise on procurement related matters and work with teams to help them navigate their way through increasingly complex and onerous regulations that can impact on the service area’s business.
We also advise on all matters relating to the supply and purchase of goods and services, and the production and review of contract documentation in relation to these.
We want it to be easy for our clients to get the support they need, when they need it and so we assign a named lawyer to be their first point of contact for any advice and support they may require from us.
