The London Borough of Ealing is to look at reviewing its three-year-old panel of external law firms advising on overflow work.
The public sector body manages the majority of its legal work in-house. However, it does send overflow work to panel members in cases where it lacks specific capacity or expertise, as well as tendering outside the panel for specific projects, such as on Building Schools for the Future.
