Camerons immigration chief defects to PwC

The head of the immigration team at CMS Cameron McKenna has left to join accountancy firm PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) as Camerons merges its immigration and HR practice groups.

After 17 years at the firm partner Julia Onslow-Cole has left with an associate.

Head of commercial at the firm Nigel Moore commented: “Our immigration team will continue to support our corporate immigration client base. They’ll also play an important role in an expanded HR practice and will be strengthened through forming closer linkages with our employment team.”

Despite Onslow-Cole’s departure, Camerons expects to retain its key corporate immigration clients, such as the UK Government.

The four-strong team will now be headed by Anthony Fincham, a partner in the HR practice.
