Ashurst’s former managing partner Justin Spendlove is joining the firm’s jilted US merger partner Fried Frank Harris Shriver & Jacobson.
As revealed on www.the lawyer.com (18 March), he will join Fried Frank’s London office at the end of this month. The US firm lost its only UK-qualified partner Christopher Kandel to Cadwalader in October 2002.
Spendlove was replaced as managing partner by young litigation partner Simon Bromwich in January.
