Law Society's Local Government Group

Nigel Roberts, Past Chairman

Having experienced First Law's advisory service at close hand, I have no reason to doubt its independence, impartiality and probity. Far from creating any conflict of interest, First Law's contribution to our tender assessment process was instrumental in assisting us to make robust decisions for the procurement of best offers from the participating law firms and to deliver Best Value for the authority. I have no doubt that once the service becomes more widely understood, public sector organisations will see it as an important contribution to ensuring Best Value in the procurement process.
