  • These councils setting themselves up as law firms... a whiff of unlawful state aid?

    My local council has been providing cut price legal work for a FTSE 100 company.

    I can't help but feel they must have surplus staff in their legal team if they can hire them out to businesses.

  • I write in support of local authorities offering unique experience of their law teams to outside bodies and individuals. It is not always about money. Other considerations must include unique areas of expertise developed over many years. It is not 'state aided' it is, at worst, state sponsored legal help.

    Services such as these are an adjunct, and of value, rather than simply another source of competition for existing firms. It's time everyone opened their eyes to what is now the 'real world' adapting and changing has to be worth considering.
