Litigation & Regulatory Team of the Year
Herbert Smith wins Litigation and Regulatory Team of the Year thanks to its work securing British Sky Broadcasting (BSkyB) damages of at least £272m from EDS following the botched installation of a customer relationship management (CRM) system. The firm was originally instructed by BSkyB in 2002, shortly after EDS was removed from its role as systems integrator. The challenge was to overturn a liability cap arranged at the outset of the deal that limited EDS' liability for damages to a maximum of £30m.
WINNER: Herbert Smith
