Sectors – Local Government
“Christopher Dodd and Sara Lawson at Huntingdon’s leading practice Leeds Day advise many public sector clients” (Legal 500 2011)
We have a long established reputation for advising local government clients, in particular local councils.
We understand the way in which decisions have to be made, the driving factors behind those decisions and the politics surrounding the same. We also have an in depth knowledge about specialist laws and statutes which govern and regulate the behaviour of local authorities and councils.
As a regional firm, but with strong local roots, we know the area in which our clients operate. Equally, we are able to apply those key skills in learning about how new clients operate, the local politics involved and quickly getting to know about local areas and backgrounds.
We realise that local governments have limited financial resources and are accountable to the public not just in relation to decision making, but also in terms of spending. It is our aim to therefore provide you with a transparent and accurate idea as to timescales and costs and adhere wherever possible to the same.
By instructing Leeds Day, you will benefit from a full range of services, including Company and commercial, Real estate, Employment, Dispute resolution – drawing on our significant experience gained in advising clients of all types across all areas of law.
We regularly advise local government clients in relation to the following:
- Significant public asset acquisitions and disposals
- Property asset management
- Public building sharing arrangements
- Quasi-public charity involvements and arrangements
- Community Interest Companies (CICs)
- Freedom of Information requests
