PROCUREMENT / SCORECARD
In terms of the final Codes of Good Practice the firm qualifies as an Exempted Micro Enterprise (EME). Accordingly, it is automatically classified as a level four contributor, meaning that 100% of a client's spend on legal services provided by the firm will contribute to achieving the required procurement level. Furthermore, using the services of EMEs entitles the client to obtain further points in the scorecards.
