About us

We are a team of professional, public sector lawyers, with expertise in commercial law, litigation and public law, and family law.

Eastern Legal Partnership (ELP) is a team of lawyers that primarily provide legal services to the London Borough of Waltham Forest.

Our successes and expertise in the council's legal matters means that we are ideally placed to help other public sector organisations such as other borough councils, housing associations, NHS, schools and academies and others. We can also provide legal services to third sector organisations.

ELP is the enterprise we have set up to do this.

Unlike private sector law firms, we are a not-for-profit venture. This means that our pricing is very competitive indeed.

Please take a look at some of our success stories and feel free to contact us with your requests or questions.

Myself and my team will be happy to help you.

Mark Hynes, Director of Governance and Law
