Ashurst finance group departs for Chapman & Cutler
Ashurst, following a restructuring of the firm’s US finance division. Partners Doug Bird, Thomas Glushko, Steven Kopp, David Nirenberg and Patrick Quill have already departed from Ashurst and will join Chapman & Cutler, a US firm.
Ashurst’s restructuring is reportedly connected to a wave of departures from the firm's London office, which saw three partners leave for Paul Hastings in late 2016.
Paul Jenkins, managing partner at Ashurst, said the New York departures are a result of the firm’s restructuring efforts from earlier in the year.
