Legal Services

Signature and penThe Legal Services Unit provides a comprehensive, effective, expert, and value for money legal service to all Directorates of the Council and the Corporate decision making process.

We provide legal advice and representation on behalf of the Council and also to other public sector partners such as the West Mercia Probation Service and some Parish Councils.  We also currently provide a legal service for other functions that WCC performs in partnership with other agencies (eg the Youth Offending Service, Supporting People Team).

Our in-house staff directly provide the greatest part of the overall legal service, with the remainder provided through additional assistance from external barristers and occasionally agent solicitors in private practice.  

The Unit cannot provide legal services or advice to members of the public, as we can only act for the Council and other approved public bodies.

We consistently receive excellent user survey ratings and are accredited Investors in People.
