Beverage giant Britvic is looking to build an informal panel of advisers in the US off the back the beverage company’s recent 15-year exclusive distribution deal with PepsiCo.
The deal secures bottling and distribution for Britvic’s Fruit Shoot products in 41 US states, hitting its initial US distribution target almost two years ahead of schedule.
Britvic general counsel and company secretary Clare Thomas said: “The size of the prize in the US is massive but it’s a huge challenge, with different laws in different states and it being a far more litigious society.”
Thomas already has an informal panel in the UK to support her 50-strong team, which includes nine lawyers based in company’s home markets of UK, Ireland and France.
