About us

EM LawShare is now the largest legal consortium of public bodies in the country. Since our inception in 2006 we have enjoyed dynamic growth – by the start of our third framework contract in 2014, we were five times our original size, with 69 members from across the East Midlands region and beyond. This grew to 90 members by October 2015.

We have broken out of our original geographical base of the East Midlands and now have members in South Yorkshire, the West Midlands and as far south as Luton. We also have a far greater diversity of organisations as members. Local authorities still predominate, but a growing number of police, fire and rescue, housing organisations and NHS trusts are also now enjoying the benefits of membership.

The consortium’s success is due not only to the thousands of pounds for the public purse generated through bulk buying power, but also our pioneering approach of appointing a small number of partner firms offering specialist legal advice at very competitive rates. Our partner firms are committed to working cooperatively together on your behalf, which enables them to offer significant added value to members, such as the annual free training programme of over 30 free courses with CPD points*, and access to a wealth of other free resources. This added value offer is continually reviewed and expanded to ensure we are meeting all your needs.

We are confident of EM LawShare’s continued success and welcome new members to join us.
