Birmingham mega-set No 5 Fountain Court has become the first set to reach 150 tenants with the hire of a five-strong personal injury (PI) team from local rival St Philips. The set is also poised to launch a Bristol office, its third site in the UK after London and Birmingham. Graham Cliff, formerly head of the PI team at St Philips, Stephen Campbell, David Tyack and William Pusey are all to join No 5’s highly-rated PI practice. In turn, St Philips has taken on rated employment barrister Tariq Sadiq from No 5. Gerard Martin QC has replaced Cliff as head of St Philips’ PI team.
