Local Government

Local authorities are responding to the challenges posed by a significantly changed socio-political and economic landscape.

What we do

As you are transforming the way in which your authority is operating, we make it our business to support you in all aspects of organisational need through a national, multi-disciplinary team providing strategic advice and specialist legal support.

What we are known for

Combining our Local Government team with the strengths of our Health team, who advise many NHS Trusts in England, we are especially well-placed to guide local authorities through the challenges and opportunities arising out of the changing Health & Social Care landscape.

DAC Beachcroft's Local Government team has been appointed to the Crescent Legal Framework in England and Wales; a consortium which is open to all UK local authorities and further education institutions. For more information please contact your usual DAC Beachcroft contact.
