Partnership and Procurement

Welcome to the National Partnership and Procurement Group of LLG

The areas of law covered by our group include:
• procurement law
• subsidy control/State aid and funding
• general commercial and contract law
• partnerships (including collaborations, joint ventures and shared services)

We hope to develop the page as a useful source of information, documents and news for local authority lawyers. Many of our members will also advise Council owned companies, combined authorities, maintained schools and academies, so we hope the range of content will reflect that mix.

If you have any queries or suggestions do get in touch. For example, we have a wide range of corporate partners who are supportive of providing free training webinars. Otherwise, we hope you find the page useful!

Thank you
Kieran and Alice
