Fox Williams has recruited corporate partner Nick Sayers from Lane & Partners, which has just merged with Bird & Bird.
Sayers, who takes with him eight year-qualified associate Howard Taylor, said he decided to leave Lane & Partners before the merger as he felt that Bird & Bird was not the right platform for his practice.
“I wish everyone else [going to Bird & Bird] well,” said Sayers. “Personally I felt my future lay with a high-quality smaller firm and Fox Williams is the best of that kind. Bird & Bird’s focus on IP, telecoms and aviation wasn’t where I saw my future.”
