Eversheds wins place on Transco panel; Pinsents, Hammonds retained

Eversheds has won a place on the National Grid Transco (NGT) panel for the first time.

The combined Pinsent Masons has also won a place on the panel thanks to Pinsents existing relationship with NGT.

Hammonds has cemented its relationship with the electricity and gas supplier by becoming the third firm to win a place on NGT’s selection of firms that will be used for general commercial work.

NGT’s group company secretary and general counsel, Helen Mahy said:
“Since National Grid and Lattice merged in 2002 to create NGT, we have used
various legal firms. These appointments now fine-tune our legal service requirements across the Group’s UK business interests.”

Denton Wilde Sapte and Martineau Johnson will continue as the company’s advisers for energy and regulatory work. CMS Cameron McKenna and Linklaters continue as corporate advisers.
