In brief: Eversheds recruits Nock from Deloittes

Eversheds has recruited well-known tax barrister Reg Nock from Deloitte & Touche to head its tax department in London. Peter Scott, Eversheds London managing partner, said the fact the firm had enticed Nock had helped it to persuade two specialist tax partners and two associates at Frere Cholmeley Bischoff to join Eversheds following Freres' disintegration.
