Legal advice and support for every part of your business

CHIC’s legal services framework creates savings and efficiencies through a panel of the country’s leading housing specialist law firms. Created through an EU-compliant tender process, the service offers more than 200 fixed-fee deals plus hourly rates at an average 30% discount on firms’ standard charges.

Our route to market has demonstrated significant efficiencies, generating over £1.4m of savings for our members from the previous framework.


Legal expertise you can’t afford to be without

In conjunction with specialist agent Kennedy Cater, we’ve brought together the experience, knowledge and expertise of the very best law firms in England and Wales. Our 22 panel members offer in-depth awareness of the demands, priorities and challenges of the housing sector, with a wide range of services to help you make savings and improve efficiency.

​Kennedy Cater also works with central and local government, NHS Trusts and other public-sector bodies. We use their legal services experience to deliver sustainable benefits and increased value through spend and service reviews, support for negotiations, strategic planning, change management, mini-tenders and day to day contract supervision.

CHIC’s legal services framework makes all these skills available on demand to your organisation to support any aspect of your corporate governance and finance, housing & asset management and property and development.

Our service includes free induction for staff, a detailed protocol and user guide to help you get the best from the framework and a wide range of added value and social value benefits. Monthly management reports provided by Kennedy Cater give you detailed analysis of your spend.

​CHIC’s framework is available and compliant – you can call work off directly, or we can run a mini-tender for you.
