Fieldfisher acquires boutique practice in Birmingham
Fieldfisher has established a base in Birmingham upon completion of a merger with 18-partner boutique firm Hill Hofstetter, which specializes in corporate, employment, litigation, and real estate law. Hill Hofstetter was founded in 2008 by lawyers who left Reed Smith’s Midlands office.
According to Fieldfisher managing partner Michael Chissick, the acquisition will help bolster the firm’s commercial team in Europe, as Fieldfisher seeks to expand in the region. Hogan Lovells and Trowers & Hamlins have also recently established offices in Birmingham.
