Addleshaw Booth & Co’s Leeds office is losing the head of its competition practice to Eversheds. Rod Lambert, who has been with Addleshaws for just over a year, is joining Eversheds as a partner to be the first competition lawyer in its Manchester office. Adam Collinson, head of competition at Eversheds’ Manchester and Leeds offices, has been managing them both. As special counsel at Addleshaws, Lambert was one of a group of five competition lawyers, including two partners, across its Manchester and Leeds offices. At Eversheds Lambert will specialise on contentious competition law.
