Trowers & Hamlins is losing an employment partner to Kendall Freeman just as the firm recruits a team of three public sector specialists from Nabarro Nathanson.
Employment partner Neil Adams is leaving for Kendall Freeman, where he will become head of employment, taking over from David von Hagen, who is opting out of the City to become a partner at Luton’s Taylor Walton.
It is the second time that Adams has followed in von Hagen’s footsteps. In 2000, Adams took over as head of employment from von Hagen at Rakisons, which later went on to merge with US firm Steptoe & Johnson.
Adams left Steptoe in 2002 to join Trowers & Hamlins. Meanwhile Trowers has scored a trio of public sector lawyers from Nabarro including head of the group Malcolm Iley. He will be joined at Trowers by partner Helen Randall and senior associate Paul McDermott.
