October 31, 2017 Ashurst M&A partner James Wood has left his position at the firm after just two years to join Sidley Austin. He joined Ashurst in 2015 following a 14-year stint at Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer.

Wood began his career with Australian firm Allens Arthur Robinson, and later joined Freshfields, where he spent four years in the firm’s Tokyo location.
