Charles Russell Speechlys recruits CMS funds head
Charles Russell Speechlys has hired CMS Cameron McKenna Nabarro Olswang’s funds group head Melville Rodrigues to join its real estate practice.
Rodrigues’ training took place at Clifford Chance legacy firm Clifford Turner, after which he held postions at McGuinness Finch and Mayer Brown. It was at Mayer Brown that he became partner in 2000.
CMS is rebuilding its ranks after having seen several partners exit since its merger with Olswang and Nabarro in May. Among the departed partners are Peter Crichton, who left the firm for McDermott Will & Emery, and Lindy Patterson QC, who left for 39 Essex Chambers.
