Central Government | Addleshaw Goddard LLP


Acting for Her Majesty’s Government is part of Addleshaw Goddard’s DNA. For many years, we have been advising numerous government departments, executive agencies and NDPBs on projects and programs of strategic importance and large scale.

We understand not only the legal framework in which the government operates, but also the high level of political control that is applied to the decisions it makes and its impact on the legal advice it needs. For example, public money must be demonstrably managed in accordance with all applicable standards, the need for transparency and the application of FOIA and EIR must be kept in mind at all times, contractual terms must consider broader strategic, political and economic objectives, including net zero goals, and the possibility of judicial review require a strong audit trail to justify every decision.

We are immensely proud of our long and successful relationship with the public sector, which in recent times has included successful defense of public procurement claims, high profile public investigative work and the renovation of landmark and iconic buildings.

Our public sector teams work from offices across the UK, combining true national reach with deep local roots.
