BLP appointed to BT panel
International law firm Berwin Leighton Paisner (BLP) has been appointed to BT’s revamped UK and Ireland panel for legal services. BT has reduced the number of firms on its books overall and this is the first time BLP has been appointed to the panel.
BT is a significant FTSE 100 TMT win for BLP, for which BLP will be a network firm but with specific subpanel appointments to advise on Commercial, Corporate, Litigation and Competition matters, including consumer, media and advertising. BLP has already provided two secondments to BT and is engaged on live matters.
The pitch was led by Marcus Pearl, a Partner in the Commercial team, and demonstrated BLP’s commitment to innovation on behalf of its clients.
