About LGSS Law



LGSS Law Ltd is a Social Enterprise law firm specialising in the Public Sector

LGSS Law Ltd is a highly-regarded team of innovative and experienced legal professionals who together provide cost-effective legal advice and assistance to a range of public and not for profit sector clients. Originally formed in April 2015 from the merger of two County Council legal teams, LGSS Law has steadily expanded due to increasing demand for its services and now comprises approximately 150 team members who are divided into specialist teams located across a network of four branch offices in Huntingdon, Cambridge, Northampton and Bedfordshire (Shefford).

LGSS Law Ltd is a ‘Social Enterprise Law Firm’ one of the first of its kind to be established in the UK it is wholly owned by public bodies and has a different structure to that of an ordinary commercial law firm. We are unique amongst law firms in that we’re owned by our clients and we don’t have ‘Partners’ which ensures that we’re run for the benefit of the clients we serve. We have our roots in the provision of legal services to local authorities and 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, Clincial Commissioning Groups, Foundation Trusts, Charities and Fire Services.
