If you need help with state aid, procurement law, or meeting other legal requirements, we can determine how best to secure a successful outcome.

We advise public sector clients on their statutory powers and fiduciary duties, and private sector clients on their interactions with the public sector.

Our work includes advising local authority, central government and other public sector clients on their statutory powers and fiduciary duties, and particularly on the ultra vires rule, which has developed to ensure that public bodies don't stray beyond their powers.

We've advised extensively on the use of new powers available to local authorities under the Localism Act 2011, and on use of arm's-length vehicles to deliver public services or hold land.
