LGSS Law, the social enterprise law firm owned by three councils, has secured two significant appointments this month.
The firm has been appointed by Bedfordshire Fire and Rescue Authority (BFRA) to provide specialist legal support in connection with their employment law. The appointment is to commence on 23 January 2017 for an initial four years.
LGSS Law has also been appointed to a legal services panel put in place by Flagship Group, which provides homes for affordable and market rent, and for sale across the East of England.
Flagship Group owns and manages more than 22,000 homes, has a turnover of £127m and employs over 550 employees.
LGSS Executive Director Quentin Baker said; “We’re absolutely delighted that Flagship Group have chosen to enlist LGSS Law to provide our legal advice assistance. We have a very talented Property and Planning team with many years of experience in commercial and contracts advice, commercial property advice (including leases, licences, acquisitions and sales), and housing advice.”
On the BFRA appointment, Baker said the engagement would broaden LGSS Law’s experience in supporting fire and rescue organisations. “Our team have particular expertise from working with fire services and we hope to further develop this specialism within our team.”
