Legal Services has been successfully delivering quality services to Birmingham City Council and its associated organisations for a number of years. The department is currently led by Kate Charlton and Stuart Evans who became Joint Acting City Solicitor on 1 January 2016. They are also sharing responsibility for the role of the Council's Monitoring Officer.
Legal Services is the largest in-house local authority legal department in the UK and, possibly, Europe, with over 150 staff.
Every member of staff has an important part to play and the success of the department rests on the collective and individual abilities to provide a high standard of service to clients and customers.
