The London office of US firm Duane Morris has poached partner Tola Ogundimu from Halliwells, where she was head of employment in London.
The hire continues Philadelphia-based Duane Morris’s strategic expansion of its London office ahead of the pending merger with San Francisco-based Hancock Rothert & Bunshoft. Hancock’s presence in London is insurance and professional liability focused.
Duane Morris London co-managing partner Susan Laws said: “More and more global businesses are seeking coordinated advice on their worldwide employment policies and practices. Tola has a wealth of experience in this area, and we look forward to serving our international clients alongside her.”
Ogundimu brings extensive international practice in employment law, is a skilled employment litigator, and has successfully executed several departmental business plans.
