TOP LOCAL government specialist Anna Forge is understood to be leaving Berwin Leighton for Rowe & Maw.
The move will bring two of the best-known local government lawyers, Forge and Tony Child, together.
Rowe & Maw's six-lawyer department has a strong reputation in local government law and Child's name is synonymous with local government auditors. Local government insiders say Rowe & Maw needs Forge to attract PFI work in an expanding market.
Forge, who joins in April, acts mainly for local authorities. She is best known work in infrastructure and planning.
Malcolm Iley, a partner at rival firm Nabarro Nath-anson, says: "Anna is technically very sound and I have always enjoyed working with her." Leonie Cowen, ranked alongside Forge and Child as a leading local government lawyer, comments: "It's a pretty good move for Rowe & Maw."
