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.
