Two partners who quit Hammonds earlier this month have resurfaced at new firms.
Manchester tax partner Andrew Ashe-Taylor, who quit on 31 March (www.thelawyer.com, 3 April), has joined the local branch of Hill Dickinson as the firm's new pensions head.
Meanwhile, Berlin tax partner Jen-Uwe Hinder, who quit the same day, has joined the local office of US firm Hogan & Hartson.
The two partners left Hammonds under the terms of a partnership agreement that restricts equity partners to handing in their notice on just two specific days of the year – 31 March and 30 September – unless they are retiring. The bond was introduced as part of a stabilisation plan initiated by Hammonds last year.
Hinder will join Hogan on 1 May, bringing the firm's German tax capability to two partners and two associates.
