A Mishcon de Reya lawyer has left the firm to join a mobile betting company as its UK chief executive.
Mark Hirschfield has jumped from the betting and gaming group at Mishcon to the top role at Spin3, which has developed a range of mobile betting games, including roulette and blackjack, since its January 2005 launch.
At Mishcon Hirschfield was the relationship lawyer for Spiral Solutions, Spin3's parent company, and the company will continue to be a client of the firm after his departure.
Matti Zinder, Spin3 global CEO, said: "The appointment of Mark Hirschfield is a major coup for Spin3. Mark brings a compelling mix of legal and business experience."
Hirschfield joined Mishcon in 2003 from Berwin Leighton Paisner, where he qualified two years earlier. He has landed the job as Spin3's head of UK operations at the age of just 29.
