This forms part of the wider strategy for legal services provision which includes three other panel agreements; General Legal Advice Services (RM3786), Rail Legal Services (RM3756) and Finance & Complex Legal Services (RM3787). You can find suitable suppliers from the lots on this agreement using the new digital filtering tool.
