Scottish firm Burness has been appointed as sole employment law adviser to gaming company Gala Coral Group.
The firm was one of five to pitch for the position and takes over a workload that was previously carried out by six firms.
Burness now sits alongside corporate and commercial advisers Ashurst and Travers Smith on Gala Coral’s list of go-to firms.
Gala Coral general counsel Harry Willits said Burness stood out among the firms pitching for the work.
“They’re very well-organised, are very transparent with fee structures and we actually really liked them as a team,” said Willits.
Willits added that he had decided to hand the employment work to a single firm because the previous system, which saw different providers engaged across the group’s various businesses, was not cost-effective.
Burness employment partner David Morgan manages the relationship with Gala Coral.
