Ashurst, Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer and SNR Denton are among the firms to win places on Société Générale’s UK panel, with Ashurst’s appointment understood to be a new client win.
The review follows a pitch process by the French banking powerhouse and sees the trio win places on the UK panel, which is a separate roster from the global panel that was last reviewed in 2011 (16 December 2011).
Allen & Overy, Clifford Chance, Herbert Smith, Hogan Lovells, Norton Rose and Simmons & Simmons were all appointed to the global panel alongside US firms Baker & McKenzie, Jones Day, Paul Hastings and Shearman & Sterling, French firm Gide Loyrette Nouel and the legal limb of PricewaterhouseCoopers.
The bank drew up a separate French panel on which a mixture of French, UK and US firms won places.
