Scottish Water unveils six-strong legal panel after delayed review

Publicly owned utilities giant Scottish Water has reappointed DLA Piper and CMS Cameron McKenna as its principal legal advisers following its first panel review in five years.

Longstanding advisers Simpson & Marwick, Harper Macleod and Shepherd & Wedderburn lost out in the review, which was launched back in February.

BLM was reappointed to provide litigation advice alongside Scottish firm Anderson Strathern, which won a spot for the first time. Lindsay Solicitors Estate Agents Scotland was reappointed for conveyancing advice.

Appointments are for an initial three years with the option to extend to six years to coincide with Scottish Water’s new regulatory period, which began on 1 April.
