About us

This is the fourth four year framework contract that EM Lawshare (EMLS) have entered into and in the twelve years since we started in 2006 we have grown from 13 members to over 130. Even in the space of the last four years we have doubled in size making us by far the biggest consortium of its kind in the country.

We now have members the length and breadth of England and one in Wales! Local authorities still predominate in terms of numbers but we have a significant number of other public bodies including fire and rescue, national parks, NHS trusts and parish councils.

We believe this growth is testimony to the value we offer members.  Primarily this is about members having the ability to instruct firms who have acknowledged expertise and experience in public sector law at significantly discounted rates and without the need for a lengthy and time consuming procurement exercise.

However, EM LawShare is now about so much more. With our Partner Firms, we have developed what we consider is an unrivalled added value offer for members. Principle among these is the annual training programme of over 40 courses a year tailored specifically to the needs of members.  This programme attracts over 1200 delegates a year and, to reflect our geographical growth, courses are increasingly being held outside the East Midlands and where possible via video-link.  They remain free to members as do others attractions such as the quarterly newsletter and biennial conference at a major venue with key note speakers.

These and other benefits such as the dedicated website, have been embedded in our offer for some time, and 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.
