CAMERON McKenna has lost one partner and two associates from its insolvency department to Bristol-based Bond Pearce.
Former Cameron McKenna partner Trevor Fox starts at Bond Pearce on Tuesday. He brings with him two associate insolvency lawyers, Matthew Hartley and Sheila Norman. Fox says: "Bond Pearce has a very strong reputation in the South and the West for insurance. I wanted to be able to attract work from London and charge provincial rates."
The trio will operate from Bristol and London premises.
Bond Pearce has also bagged Graham Jeffries, high-profile head of banking at Bournemouth-based Lester Aldridge. Jeffries will advise on insolvencies and develop Bond Pearce's banking from his base in Southampton.
Nigel Theyer, senior partner at Bond Pearce, says: "The appointment of Graham, Trevor, Sheila and Matthew, and our further expansion into London, enables Bond Pearce to consolidate its position as a leader in its field.
"Our insurance, banking and insolvency groups are already recognised as serious players in the market, a fact proved by our ever-increasing amount of national and international work."
