Manchester firm Halliwell Landau is losing its second corporate partner in as many weeks.
Patrick Rawnsley, who has been with the firm for three and a half years, is moving for personal reasons, although he has not set a start date for for his new position at Eversheds' Leeds office.
His decision to leave follows the departure of Tim Jackson-Smith, who left to join a client, Knowledge Management Software (KMS), to take up a business development position (The Lawyer, 16 October).
Jackson-Smith acted as the lead partner on KMS' £130m flotation in June this year.
Halliwells managing partner Paul Thomas says: "Tim has joined a client, and there's not much you can do about that, and Patrick has decided to move back to Leeds for domestic reasons. But we're recruiting right across the board and not just at partner level."
Among Rawnsley's clients is corporate finance house Peel Hunt, which provides funding for small and mid-cap companies.
