Ashurst lands Emap corporate role
Ashurst has scored the main corporate advisory role for Emap after the publishing company reviewed its legal panel in the wake of its takeover last year. The company has added Ashurst, CMS Cameron McKenna and employment boutique Dawsons to the roster of firms it uses for legal work, with the trio joining existing panel firms DLA Piper, Farrer & Co and US firm Epstein Becker & Green.The review was conducted by Emap group legal director Nilema Bhakta-Jones, who joined earlier this year to replace general counsel Nick Folland, who left in 2007 to join Kingfisher. Ashurst has been appointed as main corporate adviser, focusing on high-value and complex matters, with Farrers appointed to advise on mid-market work, including corporate acquisitions and disposals up to £5m and litigation matters.
