NABARRO Nathanson has snapped up Waltons & Morse electricity law specialist and former managing partner Robert Tudway for its growing energy practice.
Tudway, who was with Waltons & Morse for 21 years, joined the Nabarro's energy team last week as a partner, based in its company department and reporting directly to company head Peter Gorty.
He is understood to have taken clients with him.
"I'm leaving to join Nabarro Nathanson in order to develop my practice in electricity supply law, and other regulatory interests. With Nabarro Nathanson's prominent position in the energy area there are very interesting opportunities for further developments.
"I'm sad to be leaving Waltons & Morse. It's a good firm with good people," says Tudway.
His background involves acting for local electricity boards on specialist matters since 1984, and advising Regional Electricity Companies (RECs) in the industry privatisation in 1988-89.
He is also the joint author of works including 'Electricity: Law and Practice' written together with Waltons & Morse colleagues.
Michael Brown, Waltons & Morse managing partner, says his firm is continuing its commitment to the electricity industry, with partner Graeme Carney and consultant Ken Bailey.
"We are able to maintain the same level of service, and it is business as usual," says Brown.
"We wish Robert well in his new practice," he adds.
Partner Hugh Bohling takes Tudway's place as group manager of Waltons & Morse's corporate group.
