Nabarros scoops former Lewis Silkin corporate head

Lewis Silkin has lost its fourth partner in seven months as former corporate head Clare Grayston jumps ship to Nabarro Nathanson.

Grayston’s move follows the losses of property partner Adam Perry to Halliwells in June, followed by corporate partner Paul Glassberg to Finers Stephens Innocent and employee incentives head Guy Abbiss to Bird & Bird in November.

Nabarros is intent on boosting its corporate group and has been scouring the market for corporate partners.

Nabarros senior partner Simon Johnston said: “We will be continuing to grow the corporate practice. Clearly the AIM and mid-market public equity stuff has been good and it looks like the IT and venture capital work is coming back.”
