'MAGIC Circle' firm Gordon Dadds has signed up matrimonial lawyer Jeremy Fisher as a partner.
Fisher moved to the 13-partner firm last month from Bedford Row practice Harris Rosenblatt & Kramer and before that he was a partner at Penningtons.
"Gordon Dadds is the pre-eminent divorce firm in London. It was an offer I couldn't refuse," says Fisher.
Fisher previously worked in Brussels dealing with tele-comms regulations and for the UN human rights secretariat. He says he will advise primarily on cases involving ancillary relief - financial issues following marriage breakdowns.
"I enjoy this because it's not just about cash. It's the thrill of helping people who have perhaps made a mess of the biggest decision they've made and seeing if you can find a way for them to move forward from that disaster," says Fisher.
