Manchester Met picks four in panel rejig

Manchester Metropolitan University has revamped its legal panel with the appointment of four firms to the new roster.

Addleshaw Goddard, DWF, Eversheds and Mills & Reeve have made the cut.

Head of legal Sara Shanab put out a tender for advice across areas including academic agreements, education, employment, commercial contracts, IT, IP, procurement and construction and real estate work.

The University of Manchester also recently completed a review following the arrival of general counsel Chris Petty last year. DLA Piper has been replaced by Mills & Reeve, while Eversheds and Pinsent Masons have both been reappointed (17 May 2010).

While the University of Nottingham and Nottingham Trent University completed a joint procurement process this spring with Freeth Cartwright, Eversheds, Martineau, Mills & Reeve, Pinsent Masons and Shoosmiths winning places.
