July/August 2016 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.

 

Overall, there were a total of 43 announced partner hires in July and August – essentially flat on the 45 announced during the same period in 2015. Of course, the recent figures will have largely reflected hiring decisions made ahead of the United Kingdom’s recent vote to leave the EU, so it is still too soon to determine the impact of Brexit on the London lateral market.

 

The most acquisitive firms in this round-up were Dentons - which announced a half-dozen hires, including a five partner real estate, corporate real estate and real estate finance team from Irwin Mitchell - and Lathams which, in a series of raids, nabbed five lateral partners over the period.
