July/August 2015 round-up of lateral partner moves in London

Welcome to the latest round up of lateral partner moves in the London legal market from Edwards Gibson, where we look back at partner-level recruitment activity in London over the past two months and give you a ‘who’s moved where’ update.


Following a busy first half of the year, as with previous summer roundups, announced lateral hiring in the July and August period has been more restrained. The firm which stands out over the period is US headquartered Morgan, Lewis & Bockius LLP which adds  no fewer than seven lateral partners to its London office, including a significant five partner structured finance/securitisation team from K&L Gates.


Another trend of note was the departure of a further three senior Barclays Legal in-housers since the beginning of July to partnerships at Baker & McKenzie, Simmons & Simmons and TLT respectively.
