Addleshaw Goddard joins government legal services panel

Addleshaw Goddard has joined the Crown Commercial Service’s new legal services panel.

The panel will provide a range of legal advice to central government and its associated bodies. Addleshaw Goddard is one of 12 firms to be appointed.

As a member, Addleshaw Goddard’s team, led by Paul Hirst in Leeds and Michael Rainey, will advise the UK government on legal matters such as construction, commercial contracts, dispute resolution and litigation, employment, pensions, outsourcing, real estate, and public procurement.

Commenting on the appointment, Hirst said: “We are very pleased to be appointed by the Crown Commercial Service following a rigorous application and selection process. Addleshaw Goddard has a long track record of working closely with government and the public sector, and so we are very much alive to the pressures and sensitivities of working in these frequently-complex areas.”

“We are also aware that now, more than ever, there is a demand for the best possible advice as the public sector grapples with a number of issues that have direct effects on communities and individuals. Many of the issues facing government, whether local or national, have repercussions for years if not decades to come, so making the right decisions is vital for getting the right results both now and in the future.”

“This appointment is a reflection of the depth and breadth of our experience. We are both delighted at this recognition and excited about the opportunities it offers to further develop our relationship with public sector providers and engage with new work.”
