DENTON Hall has boosted its City office by making up 13 new partners out of a total of 15 world-wide. It has also poached Herbert Smith construction group senior assistant Miranda Ramphul to work on non-contentious construction work. She specialised in PFI and power projects and major retail and office developments at Herbert Smith. Thirteen of the new partners are based in the City office working in fields including media and technology, energy and commercial litigation. The other two partners are based in the Singapore office and cover energy and natural resources and project finance and energy. Last month (1 March), The Lawyer revealed that Denton Hall would close its New York office, leaving it without a presence in the US. The Lawyer also revealed (29 March) that Virginia Glastonbury had become managing partner in the UK and that David Moroney had become the new international managing partner. Glastonbury has begun a shake-up of Denton Hall's support services. She says that she is "delighted that Miranda has joined us". She adds that the new partners "are in areas which reflect our growing sectors".
