Salans has lost another partner to US firm Locke Lord, with corporate specialist Rob Askew joining the Texan firm’s recently-launched London office.
Askew has already joined Locke Lord, four years after joining Salans, which is currently in advanced merger talks with SNR Denton (22 August 2012).
His practice covers M&A, equity capital markets and restructuring, with a focus on China, Hong Kong and Russia.
Locke Lord chair Jerry Clements said in a statement: “Rob is a highly regarded international lawyer who will expand our firm’s global reach and help shape our international business capabilities in the UK, Europe and Hong Kong.”
Askew moved to Salans in 2008 from US firm Hunton & Williams (21 January 2008).
Locke Lord launched in London at the start of this year with a team including six partners and two consultants from Salans (7 November 2011). It later expanded with hires from sources including Dewey & LeBoeuf, Steptoe & Johnson and Berkeley House Investments.
