DWF appointed as legal advisers to four Scottish Local Authorities

Following a competitive tender process, led by The Highland Council, we are delighted to have been appointed to multiple Lots of the joint framework for the Provision of Legal Services to The Highland Council, Shetland Islands Council, Orkney Islands Council and Comhairle nan Eilean Siar (Western Isles Council).

DWF partner Wayne Lawrence, who led the tender for the firm, commented: "We have provided legal services to The Highland Council for many years and are delighted to now have the opportunity to work in partnership with all four Councils and share our sector insights and legal expertise as part of this three year appointment."

The framework runs from December 2013 to November 2016 and has a potential total value of around £4 million over three years.
