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

The contract is the firm’s second this year from the Scottish Government’s expanded Legal Services Framework, following its recent appointment to provide debt recovery services.

Worth £150,000 - £200,000 per annum, the new contract will see Morton Fraser’s public sector team provide a range of general property law services for the next two years, with the option for an additional two years after.

Morton Fraser’s public sector team is one of the largest in Scotland with over 80 specialists and more than 100 clients, and has been providing the Scottish Government with property advice for more than ten years.

Amy Entwistle, public sector property partner, said: “For the Scottish Government to place its trust in us again following a competitive tender process is a great achievement for our team.

“With recent and up-coming changes, such as Land Reform and Community Empowerment legislation and the devolution of the Crown Estate, it is an interesting time to be working with Scottish Ministers and we look forward to embracing the challenge.”

Maggie Moodie, partner and public sector lead at Morton Fraser, added: “The relationship we have with the Scottish Government is hugely important to us. We are thrilled to continue working with them on two new contracts from the expanded Legal Services Framework.

“We’re committed to offering clients clear advice with measurable added value and this success reaffirms our continued recognition of how important it is for public sector organisations to obtain the best value when outsourcing legal services.”
