CMS Cameron McKenna has been appointed by confectionary giant Nestle as advisors on its panel this year.
The firm was overlooked when Nestle first formed its first panel four years ago, despite previous instructions from the company.
Pinsent Masons has not been included in the panel this year.
Outside the UK and Ireland the company uses advisers such as US law firms Cravath Swaine & Moore and Mayer Brown.
Norton Rose has been the company’s preferred European counsel for corporate finance since 2003.
Isabelle Deschamps, head of legal for Nestle UK and Ireland, said the company was pleased with the outcome of the panel process, adding that she intends to work closely with the firms that have won slots.
