How can we help?

Public Procurement

Governance & joint ventures


Contracting authorities often work together to procure goods, works or services. We advise clients on the variety of different structures and vehicles which can be utilised for effective joint working, and then put together the relevant documentation to effect the chosen structure.

We are experts in memorandum of understandings, inter authority agreements, collaboration agreements, setting up companies (and performing all associated company secretarial work) and creating (and drafting the constitution for) joint committees populated by collaborating local authorities.

Our public procurement lawyers can also advise on the creation of a joint venture company for the contracting authority and the private sector partner to utilise to facilitate the performance of the procured contract.

“I was so impressed with the service that we received. We have subsequently found out that, as we suspected, this was the replacement for a very significant framework. That makes the result immeasurably more important to us. I have always said that Clarkslegal was a first class firm and this result, together with the manner of the service provided, admirably underpins my long held view.”


We engaged Clarkslegal to support us with a procurement issue. They quickly understood our position and represented us effectively within challenging timescales. I found their service to be thorough, professional and responsive.”
