9 Members appointed to the All Wales Legal Services panel

Civitas Law is delighted to announce that 9 of its members have been appointed to the All Wales National Procurement Service for Wales (NPS) Legal Services panel across 19 practice areas. Members will offer their advisory and advocacy services to Local Authorities across Wales, with some members doing so bilingually.

Details of the appointments are set out below. The members appointed were: Anthony Vines; Christopher Howells; Kate Parker; Matthew Paul; Mona Bayoumi; Owain Rhys James; Richard Cole; Tara Ahari; and Victoria Hillier

The appointments add to Civitas Law’s presence on the Government Legal Department’s regional and national panels, and those of the Welsh Government.

Chair of the Management Board, Richard Cole, said: “The Management Board is delighted to see more than half of Chambers’ members appointed to the All Wales Legal Services By Barristers Panel.

Chambers has always had a strong tradition of representing National, Welsh and Local Government departments, as well as other public sector organisations.  These appointments confirm the continuation of that tradition.  It also reveals the strength in depth Chambers has to offer in this area, given the range of seniority of barristers appointed.”

For more information on members’ panel membership or to instruct any of our members, do not hesitate to contact our clerks.
