Anderson Strathern has been re-appointed to the new APUC (Advanced Procurement for Universities and Colleges) Legal Services Framework.

Anderson Strathern’s position as first ranked supplier means universities and colleges in Scotland are required to approach the firm first for direct contract awards.

Glasgow Caledonian University and Fife College are the firm’s latest client wins in the sector, both secured in 2021, and add to existing higher and further education sector clients the University of Strathclyde, Edinburgh Napier University, the University of St Andrews, Ayrshire College, Edinburgh College, Glasgow Clyde College, Moray College, North Highland College and South Lanarkshire College.

Murray McCall, managing partner, Anderson Strathern, said: “The higher and further education sectors have been specialist areas for the Education Team within the firm for a number of years now, we have built great expertise accordingly, and it is the commitment of our people to these education clients that underpins the recent APUC re-appointment and top-ranking.

“Throughout Scotland, our universities and colleges, while each is very different in their own way, continue to be shining examples of the highest standards, with graduates going on to help fuel many different parts of the economy. At the same time, the Covid pandemic has challenged our education institutions and their students in a generational kind of way, and it has been incredible to see how they have innovated to keep the wheels turning through areas like virtual and blended learning.

“From our point of view, we are able to support the universities and colleges around many legal aspects including governance, charity law, property and estates, people and human resources, mergers, commercial including intellectual property and spinouts, procurement and subsidy control, and internationalisation.”
