Fladgate Fielder has poached Halliwells corporate chief Julian Lewis to boost its M&A team in London.
Lewis, who before joining Halliwells was group legal counsel at home shopping company Betterware, concentrates on AIM work. The move follows Fladgate’s acquisition of corporate boutique Gordon & Co earlier in May and the appointment of corporate partner Kate Maguire from Nomura International.
