  • When organisations restructure and change there are always opportunities created for good in-house lawyers.
    For example, the Regional Growth Fund bids will be contingent upon the bidder demonstrating they have the resources and expertise to follow the European Commission's State Aid rules.
    Naturally there will be a move towards a more efficient use of resources. This will be most apparent in the scrutiny that will be applied where legal work is outsourced to private law firms.

  • The value of lawyers is often only evident when they are absent. The State Aid example is a good one; failure to comply with this area of public sector law can lead to expensive claw back by the European Commission and claims against the awarding body for damages.

  • Go on the Law Society webpage and you will find a silly number of solicitors in each council. The unions have a bad effect in the long term by saving the inadequate.

  • This is a car crash; expect claims to rocket! We all pay in a different way.

  • Reading through the application details for the £1.4m Regional Growth Fund today, it's obvious that State Aid law is the key requirement. Boom time for specialist lawyers!
