Manchester Metropolitan University has revamped its legal panel with the appointment of four firms to the new roster.
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 DLA Piper has been replaced by Mills & Reeve, while Eversheds and Pinsent Masons have both been reappointed (17 May 2010).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.
