After an extensive tender process, the London Borough of Wandsworth has named Ashfords LLP as its new external legal adviser for non-routine litigation work and for planning, highways, contracts and general legal advice.
Leading the successful tender campaign was Ashfords' Partner and Joint CEO Garry Mackay and Partner Sian Gibbon.
Garry Mackay commented: "We are delighted to be re-appointed by the London Borough of Wandsworth. We were the Council's appointed legal advisers for the non-routine litigation contract between 2005-2010 and to have regained this work and to have been awarded the planning, highways, contracts and general legal advice contract also is a tremendous result for the firm. We are very much looking forward to working with the teams at Wandsworth again."
The UK leading law firm has been appointed to provide non routine litigation services and planning, highways, contracts and general legal advice. The contract will be for a five year term with an optional three year extension.
Martin Walker, Wandsworth’s Borough Solicitor commented: "Ashfords LLP submitted an impressive tender for both work areas and we are delighted to renew our relationship with the firm following the recent competitive tender process."
