Two partners have resigned from Hammonds at the end of the firm’s latest six month lock-in period.
Birmingham-based construction partner Rupert Cowen and Berlin-based real estate partner Martin Fleckenstein have both left the firm. It is not yet clear where both partners are moving to.
The resignations come weeks after Leeds employment partner Mark Shrives-Wright left the firm before the end of the lock-in. Shrives-Wright left for personal reasons.
Hammonds managing partner Peter Crossley said: “We’re sorry that Rupert and Martin have resigned from the firm and we wish them well for the future.
“However we’re confident in the strength of our international construction and real estate teams and these departures will not lead to any change in our strategy going forward.”
Cowen joined Hammonds in 2000 from dissolved firm Merricks. In July last year he and Hammonds partner Jonathan Leech led a team on the £17bn decommissioning of Sellafield (21 July 2008).
Cowen has been one of the firm’s key relationship partners for National Grid Transco.
Fleckenstein was part of the four-partner team that established Hammonds’ Berlin office in 2001, joining the firm from German firm Knauthe Paul Schmidt.
Earlier this year The Lawyer reported that the firm lost four partners at the end of its last lock-in period in April (1 April 2009).
