Watson, Farley & Williams has appointed Andrew Muriel, resident partner of its Moscow office, to head the firm's international aviation team.
Muriel, who replaces London-based David Osborne as head of the unit, is the firm's first foreign-based lawyer to lead Watson Farley's 12-strong aviation team, which is spread across its six offices in London, Piraeus, Paris, New York, Moscow and Copenhagen.
