National law firm Stephensons has been appointed to lot one – regional service provision of the Wider Legal Service Panel.
Under this panel the firm will deliver legal services in seven specialist areas across multiple regions in the UK. The firm will supply these services to public sector bodies across the UK including education, local and regional government, emergency services, and third sector and social housing organisations, as part of the three-year contract.
The panel has four lots and is estimated to be worth £272m over the duration of the panel agreement which is 36 months. It will be used by organisations including ministerial and non-ministerial central government departments.
Andrew Welch, managing partner at Stephensons, said: “We are pleased to be appointed to this significant framework. We have a proven track record in assisting public sector organisations. This panel will give public sector organisations reassurance they are appointing providers who have a clear understanding of their needs and challenges. We will use our experience to deliver benefits across the spectrum of our legal services to all organisations accessing the panel”.
