LONDON SCHOOL OF ECONOMICS AND POLITICAL SCIENCE APPOINTS PINSENT MASONS AS PRINCIPAL LEGAL ADVISER

May 2006

Pinsent Masons has been appointed by the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) as principal supplier of legal services across the full range of its needs. The firm beat stiff City competition in winning the appointment, which is for a period of four years.

The LSE is one of the UK's top universities, holding 3rd place behind Oxford and Cambridge in The Guardian's recent league table. It is a world class centre for its concentration of teaching and research across the full range of the social, political and economic sciences.

Founded in 1895 by Beatrice and Sidney Webb, LSE has an outstanding reputation for academic excellence and few university institutions in the world are as international. The study of social, economic and political problems covers not only the UK and European Union, but also countries of every continent. The legal work for LSE will include a substantial international element as well as a wide range of real estate, employment, constitutional and governance advice.

Nicola Hart, National Head of the Universities Group, who is leading the client team, commented, 'We are delighted with the result and excited at the prospect of working with such a unique institution. Our team are already working hard to build a very close working relationship with our colleagues within LSE to advise on the wide range of operations and activities in which they are involved.'
