Addleshaw Goddard has been appointed to the National Grid legal panel.

The revised panel, which was announced on 24 August, 2015, has been reduced from 18 to 7 firms and will see Addleshaw Goddard provide a broad range of work across the organisation. The AG team was led by partners David Shaw and Guy Winter.

National Grid's General Counsel, Alison Kay said: "Our review of the panel aimed to deliver an agile and smarter service delivery model with firms closely aligned to our business needs."

Richard Goodfellow, Addleshaw Goddard Head of Energy & Utilities said: "The size of the new Panel represents a significant consolidation as National Grid look to develop stronger relationships with a smaller group of law firms. We are therefore delighted with the confidence shown in our team and industry expertise and are looking forward to the value we can bring to support the priorities and ambitions of the legal team and its internal clients."

This latest success for Addleshaw Goddard reinforces the growing reputation of its Energy & Utilities practice following a string of wins and reappointments over the last 12 months for some of the best known names in the sector including BP, SSE plc, Sun Edison and DECC.

Addleshaw Goddard's Energy & Utilities 50 strong practice has extensive experience around power generation and renewable energies; from nuclear and gas, to solar, biomas, wind and offshore marine.
