Government and Public Sector

PwC’s longstanding deep public sector roots and our invaluable experience working for both government and suppliers to government enable us to provide an exceptional service to the public sector.

Our lawyers have significant experience working on public sector projects on a standalone basis and together with our wider PwC colleagues and understand the issues faced by our government clients including the need to achieve best value and the pressures on resources.

Due to our work alongside non-legal public sector specialists across every sector our legal team have sectoral and commercial knowledge and insights into the client objectives, behaviours and processes which enhance the quality of legal services and is unique in the market. This enables our lawyers to play a role in strategy and the design stage of transformational projects to create structures which help customers achieve objectives within the relevant regulatory frameworks.
