A raft of firms are vying for places on Transport for London’s (TfL) legal panel, as the local government body carries out its first review in five years.
Successful firms will also do work for the Greater London Authority, which is now part of TfL’s remit.
The current panel line-up consists of Ashurst, Berwin Leighton Paisner, Bird & Bird, Clifford Chance, Eversheds, Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer, Herbert Smith, K&L Gates, Manches, Simmons & Simmons, Travers Smith and Wragge & Co.
Selected firms are being invited to pitch this month to advise on a range of issues, including projects and commercial contracts, employment, property and projects.
TfL general counsel Howard Carter and legal director Andrea Clarke are leading the review.
A spokesperson for TfL said it is still “early days” in the process and it is not clear how big the panel will be or how long the agreements will be for.
In 2011 the abolished London Development Agency’s legal team was absorbed into the GLA and TfL shared legal services team (19 September 2011).
