Newcastle’s Robert Muckle hired its first-ever lateral directly into the firm’s equity, taking a former Eversheds corporate partner.
Andrew Davison, who was also company secretary with high street bakery chain Greggs Plc while practising with Eversheds, left his former firm in April, speaking to several firms before plumping for Robert Muckle.
