McGrigors’ London office has suffered a further partner departure, with capital markets head Martin Finnegan quitting to join Nabarro.
The news comes just weeks after former managing partner Colin Gray left for Eversheds along with banking partner Colin McKay, who lost the firm’s leadership election earlier this year (TheLawyer.com, 4 June).
McGrigors managing partner Richard Masters stressed that the departures were unrelated, adding that the firm remained committed to its three-year growth strategy.
“It’s a bit unfortunate that these have all come at once, but we just have to push on. Morale in London remains reasonably high,” he said.
He added that the firm still aimed to double the size of its London office within the next three years while targeting a total revenue of £100m in the same period. In the last financial year turnover stood at £60m.
Masters said a replacement capital markets head will be appointed soon.
Finnegan said his start date at Nabarro was still to be finalised, adding that he leaves McGrigors on good terms.
His departure brings McGrigors’ London partner headcount to 20, rising to 21 when David Anderson is promoted in October.
