The firm was initially contracted by Thames water in 2010 to transfer its legal division to BLP’s managed legal services (MLS). The deal was originally said to be in the range of £5 million per year – employing around 15 from the Thames Water legal department. International business partner John Bennett said BLP would be looking at ways to become more efficient instead of increasing the price.
