In today’s turbulent commercial landscape, companies across all sectors are having to operate in increasingly challenging environments. From routine legal activities to complex cross-border issues, ensuring your organisation’s operations are legally safeguarded is paramount.
The recent collapse of Carillion has brought the construction of HS2 (and other major infrastructure projects) into question with new legalities being raised daily. The upcoming changes to data protection laws in May this year will set out new rules which companies must follow or face heavy penalties (£17 million or 4 per cent of global annual revenue, whichever is highest) if found to be in breach. Having access to the right legal advice is vital in every aspect of business, whether it’s ensuring cross-border compliance with new legislation or consultancy on the legality of contractual issues. Having inadequate legal advice can be extremely costly to an organisation!
A year ago Procurement Hub launched our Legal Services Dynamic Purchasing System (DPS), the first solution of its kind in the UK. Offering quality legal services across all areas of law, our DPS can be tailored to fit with an organisations strategic objectives.
One year on and we’ve seen a significant increase in interest together with a wider breadth of requirements from our customers, resulting in over £16 million worth of contracts moving through our DPS to date.
We’ve also admitted a further ten firms to the DPS, offering a wider breath of specialisms, including suppliers in Scotland that can provide our members with expert advice on the Scottish law judicial system.
“Using the Legal Services DPS through Procurement Hub was convenient and straight forward with a very good selection of suppliers. The Procurement Hub staff were helpful and polite and responded quickly to any enquiries. We would use Procurement Hub again without hesitation!”
