Top ten Scottish law firm, Morton Fraser, has been re-appointed by the Scottish Government to provide its debt recovery services.

The new contract, worth £175,000 per annum, is the first to be awarded from the Scottish Government’s expanded Legal Services Framework, which went live in August.

It will see Morton Fraser provide legal services to the Scottish Government and a number of public sector bodies for two years, with the option to extend for a further two.

The Edinburgh and Glasgow-based firm’s public sector team is one of the largest in Scotland with over 80 specialists and more than 100 clients.

Morton Fraser has been the Scottish Government’s debt recovery partner for the last three years, and has been providing legal services to it, and previously the Scottish Executive, since 2003.

Maggie Moodie, partner and public sector lead at Morton Fraser, said: “Having one of the largest public sector teams in Scotland means we have the ability to manage very large volumes of work whilst delivering top quality services. We’re committed to providing best value and clarity of advice to our public sector clients, supporting them through secondments, training and other value added initiatives.

“We’re delighted to have been re-appointed to this new contract which is hugely important to us. Our public sector offering is an integral part of our business so this win sets the tone during what has been a sustained period of growth for the firm.”
