This article reports that Scottish Water is poised to launch a review of its external legal advisers. The public company, which was formed in 2002 following the merger of Scotland's east, west and north water authorities, is planning to put all of the law firms it instructs through a competitive tender exercise later this year. The water company conducts a tender exercise every three years. Scottish Water's principal law firm is Edinburgh-based Dundas & Wilson. It also has a relationship with Herbert Smith.
