Pinsents tipped to win extra work in Serco review

Advisers to contract and facilities management company Serco are awaiting the company’s imminent panel review, with Pinsent Masons expected to expand its ­workload as a result.

Serco, which runs the Docklands Light Railway in London, is expected to kick off a shake-up of its roster in September.

Current advisers include Ashurst, Kilpatrick Stockton, Linklaters, Lovells, Norton Rose, Pinsents and White & Case. A source close to Serco said Pinsents was expected to pick up a sole advisory role for employment ­matters.

However, one of Serco’s current firms will not be pitching again. A partner at the firm said: “We’re not going to pitch. The last effort was huge, we did hundreds of pages for our pitch and haven’t got much work out of it. We have too many other things to do.”

Serco general counsel Mark Duckworth was unavailable for comment.
