The article reports that Allied Domecq PLC's legal chief Len Quaranto has been made redundant following the takeover of the FTSE100 drinks group by France's Pernod Ricard SA. Quaranto's departure also sees Allied Domecq's relationship with principal legal adviser Linklaters, which advised the company on the takeover by Pernod, come to an end. The takeover has also resulted in the departure of Maria Reay, the general counsel of Allied Domecq's wines business. Reay, who has also yet to secure a position elsewhere, is understood to have been with Allied Domecq for approximately six years.
