Motability Operations, which leases cars to disabled drivers, has dumped regular adviser Field Fisher Waterhouse (FFW) as the first stage of a full-scale panel review.
The not-for-profit organisation has invited 10 firms to pitch for places on its legal panel. Charles Russell, Clyde & Co and Nabarro Nathanson, which are on the panel, have all been invited to participate in the beauty parade.
Motability general counsel Joanne Winfield, who is running the process, said the company is seeking to add firms to its panel to advise on employment, motor and commercial law and insurance. She added that firms will be selected on their specialist knowledge, accessibility, ability to provide solutions, transparent billing, cultural fit and cost.
An FFW spokesperson said: "We are not surprised that this has come about following the departure of Motability's legal director Phillip Simpson."
