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:

Addleshaw Goddard


Bevan Brittan

Burges Salmon

Dickinson Dees

DLA Piper UK


Mills & Reeve


Norton Rose

Pinsent Masons

Sharpe Pritchard

TPP Law Limited

Trowers & Hamlins

Walker Morris

Ward Hadaway

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.
