The recently de-Waterhoused Fieldfisher has been named Firm of the Year for Public Sector in the Legal 500 UK Awards 2014.

The award is seen as a major coup for the firm’s Government and Public Services sector group, led by Neil Palmer, which incorporates expertise from practices across the firm.

Fieldfisher’s re-appointment to the Crown Commercial Service’s legal panel, which Government departments and other public bodies are encouraged to use for all of their legal requirements, confirmed it as a go-to law firm for the public sector.

Partner and Head of the Government and Public Services sector, Neil Palmer, was described as having ‘a can do attitude balanced with clear legal direction when required’.

In return, he commented: ‘We are absolutely delighted to have been named Firm of the Year for Public Sector. Fieldfisher has long provided a strong, cross-practice offering in this area, and it is very satisfying that Legal 500 has recognised our market-leading status with this award.’
