transforming legal services in the public sector

Welcome to LGSS Law Ltd.

One of the first ‘Social Enterprise Law Firms’ to be established in the UK

LGSS Law Ltd is a true one of a kind. Established in 2015 as an ‘Alternative Business Structure’ (ABS) we are wholly owned by public bodies. We pride ourselves on serving our communities with resilience, enthusiasm and focus. Working for public sector and not for profit clients is our focus and we provide a legal service which will meet your needs.

What is LGSS Law Limited?

As a ‘social enterprise law firm’, LGSS Law Ltd is one of the first of our kind to be established in the UK. Perhaps, because we are quite unlike ordinary commercial law firms, we have attracted a rich diversity of talent. Our team is motivated, proactive and ready to serve our clients. We don’t have ‘Partners’ and are owned by our clients so we truly are wholly unique.

What do we do?

LGSS Law Ltd began trading as a private law firm in April 2015. As a partnership between Cambridgeshire County Council, Northamptonshire County Council and latterly Central Bedfordshire Council our roots have been in the provision of legal services to Local Authorities. A significant proportion of our work remains within this sector. However, over recent years our client base has grown and widened to include more than one hundred organisations across the public and not-for-profit sectors including Local Authorities, Clinical Commissioning Groups, Foundation Trusts, Charities and Fire Services.

Why choose LGSS Law Limited?

Using a ‘virtual’ legal office, we seamlessly deploy the capacity of our entire team to support all of our clients, wherever they are based. We offer the benefit of carefully developed business processes and the latest case management technology to ensure client matters are dealt with efficiently and expeditiously. Having obtained and maintained LEXCEL accreditation, the Law Society’s quality mark, our team ensures a level of resilience which is not deliverable within smaller teams. We are also excellent value for money – a key factor in our expansion.

Our credibility, values and focus remain paramount to all that we do as a publicly owned legal service provider. Our clients are key and our fees reflect this: our charging rates are substantially reduced and our regular billing system transparent. We are passionate about the work that we do and the service that we provide. We are experts in our field and provide a legal service tailored to the public and not for profit sector. We welcome enquiries from any public sector or not for profit organisations on how LGSS Law could work for you and look forward to working with you soon.
