Barclays panel: the full results

Barclays has announced that it has completed a six-month review of its coveted legal panel.

In addition to the general advisory panel Barclays has 11 specialist panels including the lending and finance panel (formerly business banking lending and finance) which comprises 31 firms. Ashurst, Cobbetts, Freshfields, Norton Rose, Shearman & Sterling and Sidley Austin Brown & Wood have been added to that panel for the first time.
