Cadwalader Wickersham & Taft has wound up its London project practice following the exit of its head, Paul Biggs.
Biggs left the firm at the end of last week, leaving the London office without a partner-level projects lawyer. His departure signals the end of Cadwalader’s project practice in London, with the firm not looking to replace him and remaining projects associates moved other practice areas.
London managing partner Andrew Wilkinson told The Lawyer: “Paul is a great lawyer and knows the African market inside out. I hope his new venture is a success for him.”
Biggs is setting up his own consultancy and it is thought that at least some of the four associates in his group will join him.
