GC for National Grid spin-off to overhaul adviser roster this year

Following National Grid’s £13.8bn separation of its gas distribution business to create Cadent, general counsel Mark Cooper will hold a panel review later this year.

Since its spin-off, a roster of 12 firms that previously acted for National Grid continues to advise Cadent. The firms are Addleshaw Goddard, CMS Cameron McKenna, DLA Piper, Eversheds Sutherland, Herbert Smith Freehills, Linklaters, Berwin Leighton Paisner, Bircham Dyson Bell, Dentons, Irwin Mitchell, Norton Rose Fulbright and Shakespeare Martineau.
