Barclays plc has announced that it has completed the six-month review of its legal panel.
White & Case, Wragge & Co, Sidley Austin Brown & Wood, SJ Berwin, CMS Cameron McKenna and Ashurst Morris Crisp have all won first-time places on one of the eight specialist panels (see below). The general advisory panel, though, remains unchanged and so continues to comprise Allen & Overy, Clifford Chance, DLA, Linklaters, Lovells and Simmons & Simmons.
As reported in todays issue of The Lawyer the HR and commoditised products panels will be disbanded on 30 June, with the work of the panels being subsumed into the other sectors.
Here is the full list of the results of the panel review:
