Addleshaw Goddard loses first partner post-merger

Addleshaw Goddard has lost its first partner since the firm was formed from the merger of Addleshaw Booth & Co and Theodore Goddard on 1 May this year.

Lesley Hall, head of the firm’s non-contentious intellectual property group, is joining Farrer & Co on 1 December 2003.

Hall, a legacy Theodore Goddard partner, became a partner in 1999 after joining as an assistant from Berwin Leighton Paisner in January 1999.
