Shopping centre owner McArthurGlen has appointed RPC as its primary legal adviser for its commercial contracts work.
The firm won a competitive tender against a number of others to win the work, which will see it manage McArthurGlen’s contracts portfolio, advise on third-party supplier contracts and develop precedents for use across the business.
Millerchip said the company was using “ad hoc legal service providers for individual projects” in the commercial contracts area.
RPC’s appointment is an open-ended contract, but Millerchip added that McArthurGlen reviews its advisers regularly.
The pitch was led by partner Oliver Bray, who said: “We enjoyed the whole pitch process, not least because the McArthurGlen team were so clear in what they needed, both from a business and a legal perspective.”
McArthurGlen owns 21 outlets in eight European countries, and is opening in Canada next year. Earlier this year (15 April 2013) former Nabarro senior partner Simon Johnston took up a role as deputy chairman at the company.
