Midlands law firm Flint Bishop has strengthened its reputation within the public sector after being appointed to provide legal advice to the Treasury Solicitor’s Department for a period of three years.
The firm, which has offices in Derby and Ashbourne, is one of only a handful of practices across the Midlands to be appointed to The Treasury Solicitor’s Department’s new Lit-Cat panel, following a rigorous tendering process, which was open to firms from across the UK.
The Lit-Cat panel provides litigation and regulatory advice to the Treasury Solicitor’s Department’s in-house legal staff. The panel is split into six areas - employment, personal injury (PI), specialised litigation support, regulatory and debt recovery. One area is dedicated to the regions across England and Wales.
The three year appointment involves providing advice on debt recovery on a national level, together with employment advice across the Midlands and Wales.
This high profile appointment follows a series of other high profile public sector appointments, including the appointment last summer to emda’s legal service panel. Flint Bishop was one of just nine practices to be appointed via an extensive tendering process.
Flint Bishop has been the preferred advisor to the Land Registry for more than a decade and provides a range of advice covering property, leases, construction, litigation, employment, debt and personal injury.
Commenting on this latest public sector appointment, Ken Dixon, managing partner at Flint Bishop said:
“We as a practice, have a wealth of experience and expertise in the public sector, and are one of only a small number of law firms that can have the resources to provide such a broad range of advice.
”Our appointment to the Treasury Solicitor Department panel is a reflection of our growing reputation in this sector.”
