The article presents information on the French Bank Société Générale SA (SocGen). SocGen is reviewing its legal panel. This news would be of moderate interest to those firms seeking a share of the bank's £50m annual legal spend in Great Britain and the U.S., but in France, it marks the beginning of a seismic shift in the way large Gallic organizations go about using external law firms. For France, it is like a revolution that SocGen has a lawyer in charge of the panel.
