Boston Consulting plans Euro legal team overhaul
Boston Consulting Group (BCG) is planning to ramp up its European legal team as the firm moves to reduce its external legal spend and review its advisers. The management consulting group, which has more than 60 offices worldwide, is set to bring in three new legal positions in Europe - including a continental legal chief. The move will mark a departure for BCG, as legal chief Jeremy Barton, who joined the organisation in May last year, is currently the only lawyer in BCG's seven-strong team based outside the US. Barton, who was previously global general counsel at Ernst & Young, is leading the initiative, with the new lawyers expected to be in place within the next few months.
