Hill Taylor snares partner from rival Holmans

Hill Taylor Dickinson has swooped on rival shipping firm Holman Fenwick & Willan with the hire of Piraeus-based partner David Pitlarge. The appointment sees Hill Taylor fight back after a number of recent losses to Holmans, including most recently the departure of commodities partner Brian Perrott in January this year. Pitlarge will spend six months in Piraeus before joining Hill Taylor’s London office in the autumn. Joanne Harris
