DJ Freeman split creates jobseekers

At least three DJ Freeman partners and a small number of other property and media fee-earners have yet to find homes, following the firm's shock announcement last week that it was splitting in two

As revealed on www. (12 March), the largest proportions of the firm's media and property practices are joining Olswang, and as of 1 May, DJ Freeman will rebrand itself as Kendall Freeman, a niche insurance and litigation practice.

The decision was made known to DJ Freeman's staff last Monday (10 March); on Tuesday the management undertook a consultation pro-cess with a small number of the fee-earners and a significant number of support staff.

Olswang took a partner vote on Monday to bring on board 38 of DJ Freeman's lawyers and 15 support staff.
