Legal services for police forces

Police forces are in a unique position with the need not just to maintain operational effectiveness but also to maintain public confidence in the decisions you take. Public scrutiny of those decisions means that you need to ensure that you follow the correct processes wherever possible and take a robust stance to claims where it is appropriate to do so. You also need to take an early view where things have gone wrong, to ensure that you avoid unnecessary costs and protect public money. 

In order to do this, you need a legal team that understands your needs, is able to hit the ground running and works seamlessly with your internal teams. A core part of our client approach is to pre-empt and minimise legal issues so that clients can focus on the delivery of a high quality service.
