Addleshaws snares Ashurst competition partner

Addleshaw Goddard has poached Ashurst competition partner Mark Clough QC after identifying competition litigation as a key growth area. Clough, one of the few solicitor-advocate QCs active in the competition sphere, has been a partner at Ashurst for 10 years and will become the eighth partner in Addleshaws’ competition group. Clough will also work on non-contentious matters, advising on merger control and public procurement. First revealed on www.thelawyer.com 27 March
