Revolving doors: HFW, Jones Day, Watson Farley make hires

April 19, 2018 UK firms saw a busy week of lateral hires in the past several days. There have been recruitments made across multiple continents involving many firms.

In London, Holman Fenwick Willan picked up litigator Nick Fisher from Fishers Solicitors. A veteran in maritime litigation, Fisher’s hire will take effect on 1 May.

Elsewhere in Europe, Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer lost its Paris head Elie Kleiman to Jones Day. With extensive experience in arbitration and litigation in a broad range of industry sectors, Kleiman will join the US firm’s global disputes practice as a partner.

In the Middle East, Bryan Cave Leighton Paisner also lost an office head with the departure of Dubai head Mohammed Kamal to Watson Farley & Williams. Kamal will join the firm to help launch its real estate practice, something he has previously done for Hogan Lovells in the Middle East before.
