Cap Gemini Ernst & Young has ditched Barlow Lyde & Gilbert after a panel review.
The firm’s new general counsel Barry Wong, who joined from IBM in December, and deputy general counsel Jane Bevan have conducted a comprehensive review over the last three months.
In a move intended to broaden the firm’s existing 3 firm panel, twelve firms were interviewed, which was pared down to a shortlist of six.
