Dawsons rejigs management for private client drive

Dawsons has appointed a lateral hire of 18 months as senior partner in a bid to drive forward its private client practice.

Wynne Thomas joined the firm from Berwin Leighton Paisner in 2002, becoming head of Dawson’s private client department.

Last year Dawsons benefited from Eversheds’ decision to axe its private client practice when it inherited the former head of the private tax group Neil Morris and his team.
