The article presents a sneak preview of the shortlisted individuals and teams for the Lawyer Awards 2005. Oil giant British Petroleum Co. PLC (BP) has undertaken a major shake-up of its 400-strong legal department. The two-year project consisted of a number of ambitious initiatives, including a review of the firm's British advisers, and it resulted in BP slashing the number of firms it uses from 100 to around 10. BP also demanded greater transparency from its external legal advisers. It asked firms to provide access to key billing and financial information held by its external lawyers. For the first time, BP hired professional support lawyers as well as a functional strategy director to help run the department.
