Altheimer & Gray has lost its first partner in London since founding its UK office in July 1999.
Andrew Astachowicz was part of Altheimer's launch team in London, but has now left the firm for 10-partner corporate and media firm Marriott Harrison. Altheimer's London managing partner Robert Bata said: "Andy is a super guy. I'm delighted that he was part of our starting team here. He was tremendously helpful in getting us up and running." Since then, Altheimer has grown to 45 lawyers in London and is one of only a handful of US firms to build a real estate practice in the UK. In addition to Astachowicz, it has four other property partners based in London. Bata said the departure was not a sign that the firm is scaling back in London. The hire marks a significant expansion for Marriott Harrison. Former property partner Vivienne Elson became a consultant to the firm earlier this year and continues to head the department.
