Application for interim relief and a protective costs order in relation to claims arising out of tendering exercises conducted by the defendant, the Legal Services Commission. These tendering exercises relate to the award of the contracts to provide publicly funded legal services. They relate to contracts for public law work and mental law work in high-security hospitals. The injunction sought would permit the defendant to continue the process of verifying successful bids and hear appeals but prevent the issue of a new contract or ‘new matter starts’ essentially until the outcome of judicial review proceedings.
