The Parliamentary Review 2018

FS Legal shares best practice alongside Prime Minister Theresa May in The Parliamentary Review

Specialist law firm FS Legal is one of a small group of ‘outstanding organisations’ to feature in The Parliamentary Review alongside Prime Minister Theresa May.

The Manchester and Birmingham based practice, led by partners Kit Sorrell and Julia Norris, was asked to share legal knowledge in the Review – which is now a key fixture in the political calendar.

FS Legal contributed by providing its own insight into key developments in the legal sector in 2017.

The Parliamentary Review – which aims to showcase best practice as a learning tool to the public and private sector – is a series of documents published by Westminster Publications with the aim of sharing knowledge and raising standards.

And it will now be sent to over half a million leading policy makers, stakeholders in industry and other relevant individuals during 2018.

Julia Norris said: “It’s a great honour for FS Legal to feature in The Parliamentary Review alongside other fantastic organisations and indeed the Prime Minister.

“I remember the Review being established by former minister The Rt Hon David Curry in 2010 – and to have witnessed how important it has become in subsequent years to many.

“There’s no doubt that 2017 was a big year both in the legal sector and in politics, so to share our specialist expertise was both an interesting experience and an honour as the articles in the Review act as both a blueprint for success and a template for reform.”

Prime Minister Theresa May commented that ‘this year’s Parliamentary Review follows a significant year in British politics’ and this is reflected in the articles from leading journalists and best practice representatives alike.

The PM’s former cabinet colleague, Sir Eric Pickles, Chairman of the Review, said: “It has never been more important for government to hear the views of business and the public sector in a constructive forum. It is also a vital time to share best practice and progress.”

The Parliamentary Review’s executive director Daniel Yossman concurred, saying: “FS Legal and other hardworking organisations from across the country have come together to make the Review possible.

“Sharing knowledge and insight with both peers and government is essential work and I am delighted that this year’s Review will reach every corner of the British economy.

“It’s always a real joy to hear from policy makers who tell me that something they have read in the Review has influenced their thinking.

“It is my belief that innovation is contagious, if only it is given the platform to spread. It is the Review’s purpose to provide this platform and I am confident we are fulfilling it.”
