Linklaters has reshaped its employment and employee incentives practice following the departure of global practice head Janet Cooper.
Cooper, an employee incentives specialist, handed in her resignation last year, but has left the firm in the past month to launch virtual HR law firm Tapestry.
Tapestry is formed out of the share scheme practices of Cooper and two other former Linklaters lawyers, Bob Grayson and Mike Pewton.
Linklaters has hired Graham Rowlands-Hempel, who returns to the magic circle firm as a part-time consultant from PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC), which he joined from Linklaters in 2008. He has been working part-time as a director in PwC’s HR services practice.
The move also follows the exit of employment partner Catrina Smith to Norton Rose (The Lawyer, 26 September). While employment and incentives are separate areas, Linklaters merged them over two years ago.
