Telecoms giant BT is set to split its panel into two groups - one general, the other specialist - as it targets firms with global capabilities for its next legal panel.
The telecommunications company has invited 26 law firms to tender. They will be interviewed in February, with the final decisions in March.
BT legal business and projects manager Suzanne Ridley told The Lawyer: "This time we've widened our tender process to include firms that have a presence in Europe, the US and the Asia-Pacific region.
"We're particularly interested in firms with a US or European presence as more international legal matters begin to arise."
BT's primary advisers - Addleshaws, Allen & Overy, Bird & Bird, Linklaters and Wragge & Co - have been invited to pitch for the panel, along with its main Scottish adviser Henderson Boyd Jackson, which recently merged with Midlands firm Gateley Wareing.
