“We engaged Muckle as we looked to procure a replacement MIS (management information system) for our Trust. This was a strategically important project for the Trust, and it was vital to work with a law firm that not only had experience in managing complex procurements but could also lead on the entire project, as we did not have the in-house resources to deliver this ourselves. Muckle exceeded our expectations, acting as an extension of our team and managing every aspect of the procurement process from start to finish. Muckle was thorough, detailed and responsive, giving us confidence and peace of mind throughout the project. 

“Muckle had a strong understanding of our needs and, more importantly, explained everything in ‘plain English’, which helped overcome any challenges those not trained in legal language face in reading complex legal documents.

“They not only provided legal advice but real practical solutions, which was invaluable in the seamless  and compliant execution of the project on a tight timescale.”
