The South London Legal Partnership (SLLP) is London's first five-borough shared legal service, combining the legal teams from Merton, Richmond, Kingston, Sutton and Wandsworth.
The aim of the service is to provide more resilient and higher quality legal services than that provided by each authority individually, assuming that future savings will need to be made to the budgets of all local authorities.
The service is ISO 9001:2015 accredited and provides the full remit of local authority legal services to the directorates of all councils as well as advice to councillors, the council, the committees of the councils and to schools in accordance with service level agreements.
South London Legal Parternship is divided into four teams:
Property and Commercial Team – provides legal advice and support in relation to procurement, contracts, property and employment matters for all councils.
Litigation, Housing and Planning Team – litigates on behalf of all the councils in the civil and criminal courts, and advises on all planning and highways matters.
Social Care and Education Team – provides legal advice and support to adults' and children's social care teams as well as to the education teams for all councils.
Practice Management Team – supports the legal service by providing administrative support to the legal officers and practice management support and information to legal services managers.
