International food and beverage giant Nestlé has dumped CMS Cameron McKenna in favour of Pinsent Masons for its UK regulatory and litigation legal panel.
Nestlé has dropped three firms in total as the company aims to slash its legal budget.
Nestlé's UK head of legal Isabelle Deschamps told The Lawyer: "There's been quite a big push to reduce Nestlé's legal spend. We also wanted to reduce the number of legal firms on the panel to allow us to build stronger relationships with a few firms."
Camerons was unsuccessful in its pitch due to fees and locality. Eversheds, Norton Rose and Pinsent Masons have been selected for the panel, which will advise on general commercial litigation and regulatory issues, such as health and safety, food and environmental law.
Pinsent Masons has been appointed to the panel for the first time. Both Norton Rose and Eversheds have been advising Nestlé for over two years.
