Our approach


With a Local Authority heritage, we understand the pressures you face
on a first-hand basis and know what can go wrong.

That’s why during initial discussions, we will work with you to understand what you want to achieve, whether that means helping you to meet deadlines, ensuring value for money or negotiating the best commercial terms whilst identifying and mitigating possible difficulties and risks.

We can advise on compliant shortcuts and managing existing supply chain
contracts, review and improve existing templates or documents, draft
clarification responses, collate contract and arrange sealing/signing and
create an audit trail.

We have been appointed to a number of public sector frameworks which allows local authorities to instruct us without undertaking a new procurement process.

Client testimonials

“Sarah provides excellent advice, often off the cuff at the end of the phone when urgent matters arise. She is extremely good at explaining the intricacies of planning law in layman’s terms, which is very much appreciated. Sarah is a reliable and conscientious colleague who I do not hesitate to contact for guidance and clarity in often high-pressured situations. She is well respected amongst her peers and colleagues, and officers very much appreciate her knowledge and calming influence.”
Planning & Highways Client
“I am writing in praise of your support. As someone in the firing line of an ultra-aggressive legal team for the first time in my life, this was a traumatic and, at times, upsetting process. You were at my side, dispensing wise and calming counsel throughout. You have been readily available when crises occurred, have been a wonderful listener and, in the end, we reached an outcome that was highly satisfactory for our school and its pupils. I cannot speak highly enough of the way that you handled this case, and I thank you and your firm for the support you gave me. Being a chair of governors, sworn to confidentiality, can be a lonely business! You kept me sane.”
