Farrers bulks up with double hire

Farrer & Co has moved to bolster its private client and tax teams with a double hire into its partnership after raids on both Taylor Wessing and Lawrence Graham. Taylor Wessing head of contentious trusts and estates Toby Graham will take the same role in Farrers’ rated private client practice when he joins on 5 March. Farrers has also hired Russell Cohen into its tax team as a partner. Cohen joins from Lawrence Graham, where he was a six year-PQE associate and where he developed a specialism in offshore tax.
