Partnerships for Schools names firms to provide support for local authorities on BSF schemes
Partnerships for Schools has announced the advisers for the legal advisory services framework (LASF) which will provide professional support for local authorities as they deliver their building schools for the future (BSF) projects.
The new framework will replace the existing one, which expires next month. It will run for two years with a possible extension of up to two years.
There are now 17 law firms on the framework – five more than on the current list of legal advisers.
The firms appointed to the framework are:
DLA Piper UK
Mills & Reeve
TPP Law Limited
Trowers & Hamlins
Wragge & Co
Firms on the LASF will offer comprehensive legal support from the pre-procurement through to operational Local Education Partnership phase of BSF programmes.
The Legal Advisory Service Framework is one of four frameworks which support delivery of BSF, the others being education and children’s services, financial and technical.
