DMH launches City employment practice

South East firm DMH has launched a London employment team with a partner from Magrath & Co.

Jessica Knight will be based in DMH’s City office, where she will work on creating a stronger London client base for the firm’s employment practice.

Knight has experience in contentious and non-contentious employment law, advising on cases as diverse as service agreements and HR to discrimination claims.

DMH’s head of employment, Rustom Tata, said: “Jessica is a very good and efficient marketeer. This is clearly a major step for us but she’s the right person to do the job.”

He added that DMH plans to continue expanding its London operation, with the anticipated hire of three or four more lawyers in the future.
