ABSTRACT
The article reports that public sector legal leaders have turned local authority cuts to their advantage by making liberalised in-house teams with the expertise to rival private practice in Great Britain. It notes that Whitehall-imposed cuts on local authorities in England had resulted in a real terms budget slashing of some percentage between 2010 and 2015. It also mentions areas such as planning and discretionary social care which are affected by the cuts.
