Dundas & Wilson’s managing partner Allan Wernham confirmed their departures, adding: “Property litigation is a key focus in London and our team continues to grow, as demonstrated by the recent hire of Andrew Walker, formerly a founding partner of the real estate disputes team at CMS Cameron McKenna. The team has also added Charlotte Wormstone as an associate this year and we will be looking to expand further, to make the most of opportunities in the market.”
Partner Ted Harrison has been appointed London debt finance chief, the firm added.
It follows the exit of high level insolvency partner John Verrill to Chadbourne & Parke and competition head Peter Willis to Bird & Bird, who both quit the firm in April (30 April 2012).
Wernham was appointed co-managing partner along with Caryn Penley in June (21 June 2012), after a short period managing the firm on an interim basis.
