Our excellent legal service is provided by a team with years of experience and specialist knowledge in all areas that are relevant to schools.
BDT Legal is a shared legal service between the London Borough of Barking and Dagenham and Thurrock Council. BDT Legal is comprehensive, responsive and cost effective.
Our traded service offer for 2017/18 provides exceptional value for our high quality legal service, with prices held from last year to take account of tighter budgets. We aim to offer better value than other councils and private firms, including:
• a one-off annual fee for initial advice and assistance, with an excellent hourly flat rate for complex work or litigation
• excellent hourly rates for more complex work and ligation for those schools that don’t subscribe to the annual option
The service has Lexcel accreditation – the Law Society mark of quality.
