Michelmores LLP continues to help the Met Police with their enquiries

Michelmores LLP is delighted to have been re-appointed by the Mayor's Office For Policing And Crime to provide legal services to the Metropolitan Police Service, as well as to over 60 other police and public bodies throughout the country.

Michelmores LLP advised on property/PFI and commercial/procurement issues under the previous framework. This resulted in high-profile instructions of considerable complexity and value, including the £370 million sale of New Scotland Yard and the disposal of the 19 hectare Peel Centre site in Hendon.

With significant additional success in the area of Employment law advice, the new agreement sees the Firm appointed to 3 lots covering respectively:  procurement, contract & commercial, and governance; employment; and property (commercial, residential property and PFI).

The tender process was led by Real Estate Partner Richard Honey who said:

We are looking forward to building on our relationship with the police service. The team worked incredibly hard to meet the challenging timescales and delivery criteria required to win a place on this prestigious framework."

“We were particularly pleased that, in the rankings awarded by the Mayor’s Office For Policing And Crime, Michelmores LLP once again topped the list for Property and PFI services and came second for both Procurement & Commercial and Employment advice, despite tough competition from other major national law firms."

Michelmores LLP is a full-service Top 100 Law Firm with offices in London, Bristol and Exeter.
