On the non-contentious, Crispin Pettifer routinely deals with contractual work; he heads the team following Janice Barber's appointment as a non-executive director of the West London Mental Health Trust. Deborah Ramshaw is the main contact for procurement mandates and Harrogate-based Martin Cheyne is best known for his employment law expertise.

Real estate expert Carol Bailey retired in December 2017.
