Heathrow: panel shake-up

The Lawyer reports that the two firms are among nine others appointed to the airport operator’s adviser legal panel following a group rebrand.

Merger

The existing panel members are: magic circle firms Allen & Overy and Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer, Blake Lapthorn, Brodies, Eversheds, Herbert Smith freehills and Pinsent Masons.
No firms have been removed from the roster, but long-time advisor McGrigors no longer has its name on the panel after its merger with Pinsents last year.
