Macfarlanes has scooped public law partner Ian Ginbey from Jones Day in a rare lateral hire. Ginbey is only Macfarlanes' second lateral partner in seven months after head of international benefits Jane Marshall joined the firm from Hammonds last June. Ginbey brings particular expertise in airports and retail and leisure projects.
