Taylor Wessing lays off four in BD restructuring

Taylor Wessing has made four business development managers redundant as part of a departmental re-jig due to complete in the next few months.

Under the changes, four new heads corresponding to individual practice areas will be appointed at a higher level than the four who were made redundant.

According to a spokesperson at the firm, external appointments will be made to the newly-created positions, ensuring that the posts are filled by people with greater levels of experience.

This will see the team, which includes events, communications and CRM and currently has 20 members of staff, grow by between two and three employees over the next six months.
