Hammonds is losing two of its most senior partners in Brussels after talks to retain them failed. Brussels competition head José Rivas and trade partner Edward Borivikov are both leaving the firm after weeks of negotiation. As first revealed on www.thelawyer.com (1 September), the pair resigned alongside office head Konstantinos Adamantopoulos earlier this year.

As well as Adamantopoulos, Jonathan Branton and Steven Geerlings are based in the city.
