Local Authorities

As large employers, many local authorities have needed support from Burnetts' employment law team: advice on discrimination, compromise agreements, TUPE or policy drafting have been key elements of our work.

Most local authorities also have a large number of properties to manage - Burnetts' five-strong commercial property law team has advised local authorities through rent reviews and other landlord and tenant matters, as well as providing expert advocacy during planning inquiries.

It is becoming increasingly common for councils to be part of joint ventures better to deliver services, but relevant legal expertise has been proved essential when entering into these agreements. Our experience has been vital in helping us to safeguard authorities' interests and ensure any newly developed products or commercial services are protected.
