The firm has won places on six of the eight Lots available, namely:
- Lot 2 - Property & Estates
- Lot 3 - Employment & Pensions
- Lot 4 - General Corporate including Tax Insolvency
- Lot 6 - General Commercial

The review and subsequent procurement was launched in September 2010 with the aim of reducing Whitehall's expenditure on legal instruction. The Framework Agreement comes into effect from 1 February 2013 and will run for an initial two year period.
Neil Palmer, head of the Public Sector Group at Fieldfisher who led on the firm's tender submission said:
"We are delighted to have been appointed to six of the eight panels. This is an excellent result which shows not only our continued commitment to the public sector but also the trust the Government has in us to continue to advise on complex and challenging projects. We look forward to continuing to work with the Government and public sector over the two years to support the important reforms that need to be made”.
