Bird & Bird corporate partner quits for Fladgates

Bird & Bird corporate partner Jeff McGeachie has quit to join Fladgate Fielder. McGeachie joined Bird & Bird after the collapse of Garretts. Bird & Bird managing partner David Kerr said that McGeachie’s practice, focusing on entrepreneurial mid-market clients, did not fit in with the firm’s corporate strategy, which is focusing on a sector-based international client base.
