University appoints law firm as sole provider in £2m contract

Aston University has awarded law firm Pinsent Masons a £2m contract to provide legal advice over a five-year period.

The contract will run until 31 August 2025.

Aston had previously said it was “seeking a single provider with demonstrable experience in the higher education sector who will:

  • service all of Aston’s legal needs in the UK and overseas (as required);
  • deliver cost certainty through clearly articulated pricing menus that draw on automation as required;
  • provide a secure platform for all information including matters, documents and financials that delivers dashboard reporting;
  • deliver a service provider who will provide good project management; and
  • deliver added value services over the duration of the contract.”

The university appointed three firms in 2016 to its most recent framework: DLA Piper; Mills & Reeve; and Pinsent Masons.
