Capsticks are delighted to be reappointed to the National Legal Services Framework (NLSF) by the Mayor’s Office for Policing and Crime for employment law work for a further four years. The reappointment demonstrates our quality of service over the last four years and reflects our ability to support such important public bodies with their complex work throughout the country. We are also pleased to be appointed to the Property (commercial, residential and PFI) lot and look forward to supporting our clients on all legal aspects of their estate.
The NLSF is managed by the Metropolitan Police and enables elected Police and Crime Commissioners, police forces and their partner organisations, GLA functional bodies and local authorities to outsource any legal work to appointed firms with the necessary ability to provide specialist legal advice to their users. The firm’s appointment to Lots 3 and 4 means that Capsticks can be instructed in all types of employment law, including tribunals, policy, TUPE and disciplinary matters, as well as property work encompassing residential, commercial and PFI projects.
