Michelmores has an established reputation for its work in the public sector, and numbers many central government departments, agencies and non-departmental public bodies amongst its clients. We handle matters from the routine up to the complex, high profile and politically sensitive. The team lawyers have a wealth of knowledge and experience directly relevant to the legal issues that such bodies are likely to face.
Our experience is bolstered by our understanding of the regulatory framework and other constraints within which our central government clients must work – and we work in partnership with them to achieve their objectives, with the provision of the best legal services at the best price.
