The article informs that the company Interbrew UK is gearing up to launch a review of its external lawyers following the restructure of its inhouse legal function. Interbrew, whose brands include Boddingtons and Stella Artois, has promoted Great Britain's general counsel Deepak Malhotra to general counsel for Western Europe. Malhotra will head an 80-strong team across 13 jurisdictions. Interbrew is now looking for a replacement for Malhotra. Malhotra has started identifying the law firms Interbrew uses in each of its jurisdictions. He then hopes to prescribe a "strategic legal plan" for the company.
