Mallesons Stephen Jaques' London office has returned to its full capacity of two partners after more than 12 months.
The firm had been operating with just managing partner Rowan Russell since late 2004.
Finance partner Hal Bolitho moved to the London office earlier this year from Melbourne, working closely with key client Allco Finance Group. Russell was named London managing partner in December 2004, replacing Ken Astridge and Tim Blue, who both returned to Sydney, the latter taking on the role of managing partner of the firm's international operations.
"Hal's here predominately to beef up the work we do on the finance side and has been very busy since joining us," said Russell. "The firm's very committed to London and recognises there's still a lot of work to do between Europe and Australia and our Asian operations."
