In brief: Fenners takes on top City duo

Recently-formed firm Fenners has doubled its size with the appointment of two City major players as partners. Founder partner John Fenner, a leading commercial property lawyer, left City-based Berwin Leighton in order to set up the firm with his son Robert Fenner last year. The firm's new arrivals are Susan Guy, who was a partner at Herbert Smith specialising in commercial property, and environmental and planning law and fellow commercial property specialist Jeremy Taylor, a senior solicitor at Rowe & Maw.
