The article informs about Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer's act of overhauling its London, England corporate group in a tacit admission that the team has lost ground over the past four years. The change is the result of a nine-month practice review that reported in February and has been implemented over the summer. The new teams are energy and transport, financial institutions, leisure, technology media and telecoms and pharmaceuticals and private equity. Each of the four teams is chaired by a partner. Since the introduction of the new structure, corporate revenues in London are up 18 percent.
