Highly rated Linklaters partner Andrew Legg has quit for Mayer Brown Rowe & Maw after over 20 years at the magic circle firm.
Linklaters decided over 18 months ago to refocus on corporate and finance work at the expense of future investment in the real estate and litigation departments. Litigation was also to be aligned more closely with the firm’s corporate department and corporate client base.
