Hammonds has pulled off a coup in the nuclear sector by advising the winning bidder on the £17bn decommissioning of Sellafield.
Nuclear Management Partners, which was advised by Hammonds partners Rupert Cowen and Jonathan Leech, has won the contract to decommission the site, after successfully negotiating the deal under new procurement techniques.
Hammonds’ client, a consortium made up of Amec, Areva and Washington International Holdings, beat off competition from clients of Denton Wilde Sapte, Linklaters and Pinsent Masons.
The Nuclear Decommissioning Authority, which is managing the winding-up of Sellafield, was advised by Herbert Smith of counsel Philip Beer and Field Fisher Waterhouse procurement partner David Gollancz.
Beer said the EU’s new competitive dialogue process, which stipulates final tenders must contain all the elements needed for the project to run successfully, was used for the bidding.
