In a kick in the teeth to Olswang, SJ Berwin has managed to win back private equity partners Jonathan Pittal and Perry Yam, who had resigned to go to Olswang. Their final decision comes following a partnership vote on Monday night, which saw the pair promoted into SJ Berwin’s equity. This is believed to be one of the conditions of the partners’ return. Their decision is a loss to Olswang, which last month lost three partners. Competition partner Alasdair Bell and advertising and sponsorship specialist Louise Quinn joined Hammonds while corporate partner Richard Hildebrand moved to Trowers & Hamlins.
