We have a dedicated public sector team of partners and associates across the firm's extensive range of legal specialisms. Our breadth of expertise and first hand experience of the challenges faced by public sector organisations within their particular political, economic, regulatory and legal contexts means that whatever your issue or transaction, we will have a specialist who can help you with it.
Our clients frequently praise the practical advice and value for money support we give them. For example:-
"Maclay Murray and Spens have provided a wide spectrum of legal services for Riverside Inverclyde Urban Regeneration Company since its inception in late 2006. Throughout the period to date MMS have provided a first class service. As well as their professionalism and understanding of our role in regeneration they are particularly responsive and have demonstrated a repeated ability to meet our often tight timescales. Such is the level of service received from MMS we intend to continue to do more business with them and would encourage other regeneration organisations to do the same."
Garry Williamson, Implementation Manager, Riverside Inverclyde
"Maclays have acted for Scottish Enterprise over a long period of years. In particular, they have shown a willingness to familiarise themselves with the strategy and operational priorities of Scottish Enterprise, and to work closely with the in-house legal team who instruct them directly on all work."
John McMillan, Head of Legal, Scottish Enterprise
Our experience of advising public sector organisations is often invaluable to our private sector clients in their dealings with the public sector bodies, for example in understanding the processes (such as public procurement and state aid rules) and the sensitivities and issues which will be key drivers for public sector partners in projects and contracts.
