The Gatwick Diamond

The Gatwick Diamond is a key location for companies supplying the defence industry. The team at stevensdrake specialises in dealing with the unique challenges of this most sensitive area. With experience in defence procurement including R&D contracts for emergent technology and supply contracts for existing goods and services, the team has assisted many lead and sub-contractors in their dealings with the Ministry of Defence and former UK Government Agencies. This places us in a unique position in Sussex and Surrey, allowing local companies to take advice from specialists on their doorstep.
