We help clients to achieve competitive advantage through our deep sector knowledge, pragmatic commercial skills and our commitment to driving the successful outcome of projects
Under the coalition’s agenda the public and private sectors will do business with each other in ever more innovative and complex ways — working together to achieve savings and new models of service delivery. Despite the cutbacks, the need for investment in infrastructure will continue, with PPP continuing to be a vital option. Meanwhile, public sector efficiency will be driven by the creation of new partnerships between government, private sector as well as ‘third-sector’ partnerships. Important components of this agenda include investment in technology and in climate change.
On every project we work in partnership with our clients to measurably deliver on their objectives, with particular emphasis on adding value through training, skills transfer and secondments.
We are currently working on public sector outsourcings; infrastructure and regeneration; business transformation and new forms of PPP. Other recent deals include closing infrastructure projects in schools, academies and education services, hospitals and private sector health services, police buildings, facilities management, social housing, sports facilities, and waste services.
We act on deals in the education, waste, energy, housing and health sectors and provide solutions for both public and private sector clients. We work closely with other teams of experts across the firm, such as commercial, banking, public procurement, real estate, construction, pensions, employment, local government, tax, technology and dispute resolution.
We are appointed to several national procurement panels, including the Buying Solutions full commercial panel and the Partnership for Schools (Building Schools for the Future) legal panel, meaning that we are approved suppliers for these organisations.
