Local government

Recognised as market-leading legal advisors to local government, Bevan Brittan stands out from the crowd.

We act for every local authority in England and most in Wales. This gives us an unrivalled perspective on the range of issues our clients face and on your opportunities to introduce positive change. Core members of our team have worked in-house for local authorities, and this adds another dimension to our skill set. We truly understand the internal structures, pressures, processes and cultures that define local government organisations.

Our experience extends across the full range of local authority legal work, from regeneration to children’s services. We draw on the expertise of lawyers from across the firm to provide all the advice and support our clients need in any given situation.

It’s full-service legal support that means something. Hands-on, strategic, bespoke. It’s also innovative; we are involved in some of the most pioneering responses to challenges faced by local government. And as austerity measures continue to force authorities to do things differently, we’re at the heart of this, with ideas, solutions and commitment to helping you adapt.

You can instruct us directly under number of legal frameworks. Click here to find more.
