IT services company Fujitsu Services is conducting a review of its IT law firms. A number of firms have been asked to pitch alongside incumbent IT advisers Baker & McKenzie, Barlow Lyde & Gilbert and Masons. "There are a relatively small number of firms in this sector," Fujitsu group counsel Richard Allnutt told The Lawyer. "We need a clear idea of who has the expertise in which areas." The Lawyer understands that Allnutt is studying firms' outsourcing expertise, their experience in the public sector and their capacity to work on large deals over the coming year. Fujitsu is one of a number of bidders looking to profit from the slew of central government IT outsourcing projects. Allnutt said he would review continuously the firms that he currently uses and study the potential of others. "This is an ongoing intelligence-gathering exercise," he said.
