A&O, Clifford Chance, Links and CMS lead on Phones4u administration


Allen & Overy (A&O), Clifford Chance (CC), Linklaters and CMS Cameron McKenna landed the key roles when high street retailer Phones4u entered administration last month.

With PwC acting as administrator, the company went into administration on 15 September after the withdrawal of EE, O2 and Vodafone products from its stores, placing nearly 5,596 jobs and more than 700 outlets at risk. However, some stores and staff were relocated with mobile carriers EE and Vodafone, as well as Dixons Carphone purchasing assets.
