Public Services & Education

There is great competition between countries to attract businesses and investment. In a globalised and digital economy, governments have to work even harder to attract companies, capital and to be seen as a destination that embraces innovation. The quality of public services and education infrastructure is a big factor in where people choose to live and work.

The public sector faces an ever-increasing demand for investment in transport infrastructure, education, energy, healthcare, water and waste, as well as defence and internal security. But they are also under considerable financial constraint.

With our combination of legal innovation and long-standing experience of working with the public sector, we can help businesses achieve the cost-saving outcomes they are looking for.

We have a particular strength in advising on privatisation projects, financing, outsourcing and Public Private Partnerships (PPP). We will also help them with procurement and public tenders, and have a strong track record in IT and defence.

Our clients range from local authorities to multinational organisations, and from governments to NGOs. All of them trust us as an advisor that provides more than just legal advice.
