Strategic services partnerships

The leading public sector practice acting for over 200 public authorities across the UK

We advise our public and private sector clients on all forms of public/public and public/private Strategic Service Partnerships.

We have been at the forefront of developments in this area, extending the range of delivery partners to include stand alone and hybrid mutuals (involving private sector investment) as well as more traditional contractual and joint venture models.  We have also expanded the scope of contracted public services, for example the first outsourcing of local authority development and regulatory services in Barnet. 

Strategic Service Partnerships are only one answer to the public services transformation agenda and our team frequently advises on a range of options including public/public solutions, public sector wholly owned companies as well as joint ventures, mutuals and contractual partnerships with the private and third sectors.  We work with our clients to identify their strategic goals and match the most appropriate solutions to ensure successful delivery.

Our experienced team advises on all stages of strategic service partnership projects from the initial options appraisal (or decision to bid), the procurement strategy and all aspects of contract negotiation and delivery.  The team includes experts in public law, procurement, state aid, employment, pensions, property, ICT, intellectual property, construction and tax law who work together to provide the specialist support required to deliver a successful strategic service partnership project.

The team understands the need for strategic service partnerships to deliver high quality public services, cost effectiveness as well as sustainable economic and community development and can help you deliver these objectives in your project.
