Ashurst lures partner duo from HSF
Ashurst was able to lure a partner duo away from Herbert Smith Freehills in London and boost its TMT group.
Partners Nick Elverston and Amanda Hale are moving to Ashurst. Elverston is leaving HSF after 11 years and his departure means a vacancy where he previously served as head of HSF's global TMT group. Elverston came to HSF from Clifford Chance in 2004.
Hale also joined HSF in 2004, after previously working in a consulting role at Clifford Chance. Hale was made partner in 2011.
HSF had a team of five partners in its London TMT practice before the departures. The remaining three partners there are Gavin Davies, Nick Pantlin and Stephen Wilkinson
