Simmons & Simmons is losing a second senior partner to the Government in just over a year.
Edward Troup, managing partner of the tax and pensions group at Simmons, has been appointed as the director of business and indirect tax at the Treasury.
His move into public service follows Simmons’ former head of competition Peter Freeman, who became deputy chairman of the Competition Commission earlier last year.
