Dundas bags three partners for London

Dundas & Wilson is continuing a City hiring spree with the appointment of three new partners, bringing the total number of lateral hires in London this year to five.

Pinsent Masons construction partner Mark Tiggeman, Watson Farley & Williams projects partner Ian McNeill, and employment specialist Graham Paul from City boutique Doyle Clayton are the latest hires for the Scottish firm.

Tiggeman is the second Pinsents partner to jump ship for Dundas this year, following the move of former banking head Rhodri Davies in February. The Scottish firm also bagged Hammonds’ private equity partner Simon Sale in September.

Dundas chief executive Neil Cochran said the appointments were part of the firm’s strategy to grow the London office in a focused way, and that they extended its practice area range. The firm now has 16 London partners.
