Bircham Dyson Bell has suffered a further blow to its social housing practice with the news that associate Abimbola Badejo has also quit the firm. Badejo is to follow the firm's head of social housing Keith Jenkins to Westminster specialist Winckworth Sherwood, where it is understood that both will start on 1 March 2007.
