DWF's appointment spans all three lots, giving the business the ability to advise the wider public sector, primarily local government and other associated bodies, through the panel, across England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland as well as through a separate transport and rail lot.
DWF was on the previous version of this panel across several lots, but has secured a greater number of lots this time.
This follows on from the news in December 2021 that DWF was successful in being appointed to the UK Government's Crown Commercial Service's (CCS) Legal Services Panel, to provide general legal services to UK central government departments and other public sector bodies.
Crown Commercial Service supports the public sector to achieve maximum commercial value when procuring common goods and services. In 2021/22, CCS helped the public sector to achieve commercial benefits equal to £2.8 billion - supporting world-class public services that offer best value for taxpayers.
Jonathan Branton, Partner and Head of Government and Public Sector at DWF, said: "We are delighted to have been appointed to the new panel across all lots. Having a place on both the local and central government panels enables us to help solve complex legal issues right across the public sector and it is another indication of our leading reputation in the sector."
