Helen Randall

Partner โ€“โ€“โ€“ London

Helen advises the public and private sectors on outsourcings, joint ventures, mutuals, strategic partnerships, trading vehicles, shared services and PPPs across all service areas ranging from customer services, social care and regeneration. She also advises on procurement and bidding strategies and governance issues.

Many of the projects on which she has advised have won national and international awards or been National Pathfinders because they have involved the application of innovation.

Helen has been long recognised by the Legal 500 and Chambers as a national expert in several legal areas including local government, public procurement, administrative and public law, education and PPPs.

Chambers and Partners 2018 advise "Helen could not be better. She is astute, understands her clients, and very quickly and invariably gives fantastic advice."

"Helen Randall advises public sector organisations, bidders and contractors on all aspects of procurement law, and is recommended for her expertise in creating Teckal companies. Clients say: "She is fantastic and gives us tailored advice," and "a great communicator."

"Helen Randall's previous experience as an in-house local authority lawyer makes her a strong choice to advise public bodies on a range of issues, including procurement, governance, joint ventures and devolution. Sources say: 'She's got a very good knowledge and clear understanding of the way in which local government works.'"

Legal 500 praises the 'forensic' approach combined with 'genuine creativity' which Helen brings to her work.

Helen chaired the award winning New Local Government Network.  A leading policy think tank which promotes efficiency and modernisation in the public sector. She was on Sir Ian Byatt’s Procurement Taskforce Report and elected to The Guardian's Public Leaders Network.

The University of Law has conferred Helen with Visiting Professor status.

Helen has consistently been named as being among the world's leading government contract lawyers by Who's Who legal: Government Contracts.
