The BBC has restructured its legal division in a bid to increase overall efficiency. The move is accompanied by the creation of a new intellectual property department designed to protect the BBC brand name. Legal adviser Gareth Roscoe now heads a legal division with five departments: programme legal advice, litigation, statutory and commercial legal affairs, worldwide legal services and intellectual property.

The litigation department, which is involved in the privatisation of the transmission network, is now headed by Sarah Jones, who was recruited from Allen & Overy.
