Jones Day’s London office is facing the loss of two more legacy Jones Day partners.
Finance partners Martin Bartlam and Hazel Miller resigned from the firm last week, although their destinations are as yet unknown.
Their resignations come hot on the heels of Jones Day’s UK head of pensions decision to leave the firm. As first revealed in The Lawyer (22 November) Martin Scott is leaving Jones Day to join Olswang, when he will set about helping the UK firm to launch its own UK practice.
Bartlam, who joined Jones Day from Credit Lyonnais’ structured products group in January 2001, is understood to have relationships with Lloyds TSB, CSFB and Deutsche Bank.
He also advised First Energy and Acquila on the financing aspects relating to the sale of their interests in Midland Electricity.
Meanwhile, it is understood that Miller’s client list includes Aventis, Barclays, France Telecom, JP Morgan and Westbrook Real Estate Fund.
