Specialists in public sector contracting, commercial outsourcing and joint ventures

Blake Morgan is an expert commercial contracts, outsourcing and joint ventures law firm.

Our ambition is to support private, public and third sector parties, as well as funders, in all sectors, to achieve their vision and strategy through well planned and scoped, efficiently implemented, successful projects. We don’t just have experts who advise on the law – our team focuses on outcomes for our clients, and ensures we provide the most up-to-date, real-world solutions, at the right price for the job. We ensure we protect the common purpose for joint venture arrangements as well as supporting partners to disengage when needed for an orderly exit.

Blake Morgan has a team that get under the skin of commercial ventures, in a number of sectors, including corporate/commercial arrangements, local authority leisure, education, housing and health.

We ensure it’s clear whether a structure is corporate or contractual, who is bringing what to any commercial venture, what is anticipated in return for one’s contribution, how uplift is to be captured and shared, timings on resource injection and withdrawal, and both successful and unsuccessful exit. The joint ventures that work best are the ones where each party is as committed to its partner’s achievement of objectives as it is its own.

We supported the London Borough of Merton in realising its vision for significantly improved leisure services and facilities for its local citizens. We advised on the council's partnership with a procured leisure operator to deliver and invest in leisure services over a long-term contract in a contractual joint venture.


We supported the University of Reading in the realisation of its vision for superior educational accommodation at its campus, in keeping with its status as a leading education provider. We worked closely with the university to get the most from its existing corporate joint venture and partnership.
