Bird & Bird has raided Barlow Lyde & Gilbert for a three partner IT outsourcing team which includes department head Simon Shooter.
Joining him are partners Chris Holder and Christian Bartsch, the last of BLG’s core outsourcing team.
BLG senior partner Richard Dedman said: “We shall be sorry to see these three partners go but we understand the difficulties they face in the current market place in growing their core outsourcing practice for which Bird & Bird's specialist platform may provide greater opportunities.”
In July last year the outsourcing team was hit by the loss of Kit Burden to DLA Piper. This year the firm has seen corporate senior associate Gavin McGuire and insurance head Graham Dickinson walk out the door.
