Mace & Jones has won a place on the Northwest Development Agency (NWDA) panel.
It has been appointed for two years with the option of a further two-year extension. Firms were invited to pitch for the panel place in June. Prior to the pitching process, the NWDA had a six-firm panel. It has retained four of those six, including Eversheds and Addleshaw Booth & Co, and added Mace & Jones. Mace & Jones managing partner Lawrence Downey said: "We tend to be known as a firm that has a few particular specialisms. This appointment recognises the all-round strengths of the firm." It as taken nearly six months to whittle the interested firms down to just Mace & Jones, but the firm has now started to receive instructions from the NWDA. Downey said: "We're handling more public sector and local government work than ever before. It's an area which is, in some respects, more recession-proof than some private sector work. It gives us a little bit of security." Mace & Jones has offices in Liverpool and Manchester.
