Travers Smith has sent newly promoted partner Anthony Foster on secondment to the Bank of England (BoE).
Foster, who was made up to partner in July, will spend sixth months at the bank before returning to Travers. He specialises in corporate finance and AIM flotations, which have all but disappeared in the current financial crisis.
