Arnheim Tite & Lewis, the associate law firm of PricewaterhouseCoopers, has raided City and international firms and in-house departments to recruit 11 new lawyers.
The new arrivals are part of the firm's planned expansion from its current 100 fee-earners to 250 by July 2001, which sees it shaking off the after-effects of losing six partners who left to form KPMG's legal arm (The Lawyer, 3 May).
Arnheim Tite's managing partner Christopher Tite says: "People want to join us because we offer them an exciting career working with world class clients. No other law firm has the global reach that our association with PwC provides."
Four of the recruits are joining the IT and telecoms group. They are: Harinder Lamba, former head of legal and compliance at Standard Chartered Bank in India; Daniel Hirschson from Mallinicks in South Africa; Selva Naidu from Holman Fenwick & Willan; and Stephanie Mursa from Minter Ellison in Australia.
The other new arrivals are: Stuart Hatcher from Titmuss Sainer Dechert; Deborah Sharp from PwC UK (corporate); Nick Lykke Dahn from Beachcroft Wansbroughs (real estate); Kerrie Walsh from PwC San Francisco (financial services); Patrick Cliffe from Hammond Suddards (intellectual property); Carol George from the London School of Economics (international trade); and Laura Hamilton from Slaughter and May (pensions).
