The second panel will handle work for regular Treasury Solicitor client Ofsted, and consists of Anthony Collins Solicitors, Bevan Brittan, Borneo Linnells, Field Fisher Waterhouse, Jones Myers Partnership, and Sternberg Reed Taylor & Gill.
Further panels are also being developed. The first - to be known as 'Lit Cat Phase Two', focusing on basic litigation and criminal services, will be settled by 1 June. A panel to service the Department for Trade and Industry is on the drawing board. For phase three of the Lit Cat panels, the Treasury Solicitor's Office is examining a roster of selected experts.
Salans partner Caroline Harvey, who heads the firm's Bromley office, said the firm was delighted to be appointed to the panel.
