Hudson boost in-house legal with European first

Recruitment consultant Hudson has scooped its first European general counsel, in the guise of a former Cable & Wireless (C&W) lawyer.

Louise Marshall, the former C&W legal director and associate general counsel joined Hudson last month and will report to the company’s European president and chief executive Christine Raynaud.

Prior to joining C&W, Marshall was a private equity specialist at Lovells.

Earlier this year, the telecoms giant slashed its in-house team with a compulsory redundancy programme affecting up to 30 per cent of the company’s lawyers.
