Panels and Framework Agreements
Framework Agreements offer clients in all sectors an opportunity to secure best value legal solutions – not only by way of competitive fee arrangements but also through the delivery of valuable additional benefits such as free of charge bespoke training, precedents, etc.
We specialise in setting up robust frameworks of solicitors and barristers for our clients (in both the public and private sectors). Often our consultants will work with clients to forge alliances of organisations that can approach the market with a higher volume of work than such bodies are able to present on their own.
We understand the need for clients in the public sector to comply with the EU procurement regime and work closely with them and their procurement teams to ensure a fair, transparent and objective process.
Framework agreements we have set up in the Public Sector include those for the AA/Saga, the London Boroughs Legal Alliance (a collaboration of 17 London authorities), Riverside Housing and the Housing Associations' Legal Alliance. The arrangements in place for both of these groups are innovative, exciting and are leading to substantial savings for those members involved.
