Essex County Council

Philip Thomson, County Solicitor

We have been using First Law's counsel database for nearly a year now and we have already made significant savings on counsel fees. Not only does the database give you ready access to competitive quotes from a wide range of Chambers, its active use has encouraged Chambers we normally retain to revise their prices downwards. This simple online tool has the potential to make significant savings for all local authorities that use it, and the more that do, the greater that saving is likely to be.
