In a blow to Lovells’ acquisition finance practice, star banking partner Adam Freeman has quit to join Linklaters.
Freeman’s resignation was announced to the Lovells partnership last night, but the terms of his exit have not yet been finalised.
Freeman’s promotion to the partnership in 2003 formed part of a renewed push by Lovells into banking. His clients include CIBC and Societe Generale.
