Norton Rose is the latest firm to be raided by Milbank Tweed Hadley & McCloy, with the US headquartered firm hiring financial disputes partner Charles Evans.
The hire comes just weeks after Norton Rose international arbitration head Joseph Tirado quit the firm to join Winston & Strawn, while fellow London disputes partner Steve Abraham left for Baker & McKenzie (28 September 2012 ).
Evans is a long-standing member of the Norton Rose litigation practice and sources said his exit would be a loss to the firm.
Norton Rose litigation head Deirdre Walker confirmed the exit, adding: “Partners Dorian Drew, Michael Godden, Paul Morris and Radford Goodman continue to lead our contentious financial institutions work.”
Milbank could not be reached for comment.
