I understand from a FOI answer that TfL reports the following expenditure on legal services: Word Weave International (formerly Merrill Legal Solutions) £531,321 in the financial year 2008/09 and £560,441 in 2009/10. Eversheds, £7,137,500 in 2008/09 and around £6,250,000 in 2009/10. Can you please say how much of this was attributed to Employment matters and separately for disputes? What is the hourly rate paid by TfL for legal services under these contracts? What is being done by TfL to reduce these costs?
