Crabtree, an international insurance coverage disputes specialist, resigned in January and an internal announcement was made to staff at Pinsents earlier this month.
It is understood that Crabtree has a 12-month notice period and is currently negotiating the terms of his departure with senior management at the firm. Taylor Wessing is understood to be keen to bring forward Crabtree's start date.
