Jones Day’s City arm has raided Lovells for a employment partner Mark Taylor.
Taylor, who joined Lovells as a senior associate from the now defunct firm Garretts in 2000 and became a partner in 2002, resigned earlier this month.
His departure leaves Lovells with four employment partners in London.
Lovells’ managing partner David Harris said: “"While we are always sorry to see a partner go Mark's departure will have a limited impact.
"Our employment practice is well established and respected and we are very confident that in the four remaining partners, led by David Harper, we have significant capability with the right blend of skills and experience."
Taylor is the latest in string of partners to leave Lovells in recent months. In May veteran corporate partner John Davidson quit to join Lovells’ key client SABMiller. Meanwhile, private equity partners Marco Compagnioni and Derek Baird left the firm earlier this year to join Weil Gotshal & Manges and Allen & Overy respectively.
