The article informs that the company Hammonds has won a new role as the global legal adviser for SSL International PLC. The appointment, made following a beauty parade, comes just eight months after Antony Mannion took over from Jonathan Jowett as company secretary and legal director. SSL, a FTSE 250 company which makes products such as Durex condoms and Scholl footwear, has traditionally instructed Allen & Overy (A&O) and DLA Piper Rudnick Gray Cary. It is understood that A&O will retain a role advising on the largest transactions but Hammonds will do the rest of the company's legal work across its global network.
