Highly regarded five-partner niche construction firm Fenwick Elliott has lost its top biller partner Joseph Hannah and associate Timothy Mould who have resigned to set up their own practice.
It is believed Hannah, who has worked at Fenwicks since 1989 and has been a partner there for five-and-a-half years, was in dispute with the partnership, but Hannah himself was unable to comment. "These sort of things happen in the legal market place," he said.
Mould said he had been offered a partnership at Fenwicks in December 1996 but turned it down in favour of joining Hannah's new venture.
Hannah, who said he had been either the biggest or the second biggest biller at Fenwicks for several years, has taken many of his clients with him to new firm Hannah & Mould, on 103, Mount Street, London W1.
He said the new firm would specialise in major BOT (build operate transfer) projects around the world and would have less of an emphasis on construction litigation, the area in which Robert Fenwick Elliott is famed.
Fenwicks said it had been decided that "it would be inappropriate" to make the reasons for the departure public.
