Robert Haldane had been brought in from Clifford Chance, where he was a partner with a brief to increase the amount of work carried out by the firm on behalf of merchant banks and venture capitalists.
Tim Anderson, head of Reynolds Porter Chamberlain's corporate finance department said the firm had no immediate plans to replace Haldane and had decided to concentrate on its traditional corporate finance work, advising companies.
