Norton Rose appointed to new legal panel of Ofwat
Jul 27, 2010
Norton Rose LLP, the international legal practice, announces today that it has been appointed to the legal panel of the Water Services Regulation Authority (Ofwat) following a competitive tender. The appointment is for four years.
Michael Grenfell, regulatory partner at Norton Rose LLP, commented:
"We at Norton Rose are thrilled to have been appointed by Ofwat to their first legal panel. We will endeavour to provide them with a top-quality practical service to justify their confidence in us. This appointment means that we are now on the legal panels of two of the main UK sector regulators, Ofwat and the rail regulator ORR. In addition to our work for the UK Department of Health, Department for Transport and The Crown Estate, this appointment represents a significant boost to governmental, regulatory and public law practice."
The appointment to the Ofwat panel follows the re-appointment, of Norton Rose LLP, to the UK rail regulator in September 2009.
