Welcome to the NWLC

The NWLC is a Consortium made up of public authorities that wish to collaborate in the procurement and provision of quality legal services to their authorities. They wish to maximise efficiencies and increase the effectiveness of the external legal support they require to supplement their in-house provision.

To this end, following a rigorous procurement exercise, through its lead authority Sefton Metropolitan Borough Council, the NWLC has, entered into Framework Agreements with external solicitors firms for the provision of legal advice and support and with Barristers Chambers for the provision of advocacy and advice.

Building upon this successful collaboration, the Consortium authorities intend to increase inter-authority working and co-operation in the interests of increased efficiency and effectiveness.
