Philip Lee is delighted to announce its appointment to the Lucozade Ribena Suntory (“LRS”) legal panel, the first formal legal panel for the organisation.
The panel will provide legal advice and support to the company across the UK and Ireland. Philip Lee was chosen, together with other leading firms, not only for its strong capabilities and experience, but also for the firm’s strategic alignment to LRS’s vision and principles.
LRS began the panel selection process by creating a shortlist of 23 firms based on an assessment of capabilities and practice areas, identifying those with the right skills and experience to support LRS. These firms were then invited to tender for a chance to be on the panel. With cultural fit of paramount importance to LRS, the selected law firms were asked to not only highlight their sector experience and expertise, but to also demonstrate their company culture, innovative capabilities and pro bono work. After all tender submissions were received, LRS created a shortlist of the law firms it felt could best deliver for the company. The successful firms were invited to interview. As part of each interview, firms were asked to present to the LRS team, outlining how they would deliver compelling training sessions to the LRS business. Following this interview, a further stage of meetings was held with key teams based in the UK and Ireland.
Commenting on the appointment, Philip Lee partner Ronan Dunne said: “We are proud to have been appointed to LRS’s inaugural legal panel. We share LRS’s philosophy and values of “One team. Passion. Commitment and Agility” and greatly look forward to finding both pragmatic and innovative solutions to relevant issues that may arise for the LRS team in Ireland.”
