This year, The Lawyer’s annual ranking of the largest UK law firms by turnover is available as an interactive, digital benchmarking tool. For the first time this will allow you to manipulate each data set against the metrics of your choice.
Steve Fiamma, head of US firm Jones Day Reavis & Pogue in London, has made good on the promise he made in The Lawyer last week to "hire one or two more partners by the end of the year". He has recruited Robert Thomson, formerly a litigation partner with Denton Hall.
Thomson, a litigation specialist, will be the sixth partner in the firm's London branch. He deals with large-scale, complex, international disputes which are the subject of litigation and arbitration, in the fields of international trade, intellectual property, banking, commodities and white collar crime.
Thomson joins Kaamil Ansar who was recruited from Skadden Arps Slate Meagher & Flom's London office last week.
