City firm Watson Farley & Williams has lost its second partner this year to the banking and finance markets group at Denton Hall. Neil Cuthbert, a partner with Watsons who was with the firm for 12 years, joins leading banking lawyer Geoffrey Wynne, who moved to Denton Hall at the beginning of the year. Cuthbert worked at the Royal Bank of Canada, where Wynne was assistant general counsel. He moved to Watsons in 1985, the same year as Wynne, and now he follows him to Denton Hall. Denton Hall has also recruited two assistants; one, Ulf Forsman, from Watsons and the other, Chris Fanner, from Norton Rose.
