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.
