Mishcon snares Faegre employment head

The London office of US firm Faegre & Benson has lost the head of its employment team, and its sole employment partner, to Mishcon de Reya.

Greg Campbell, who joined Faegre in 2004 from Tite & Lewis, will join Holborn firm Mishcon in July. He is the latest in a recent string of hires that includes Macfarlanes assistant Luke Morris, who joined as a partner.

Faegre’s London office turned over £8.5m last year and posted an average profit per equity partner (PEP) figure of £260,000. It has 12 partners, with seven focused on corporate. The firm confirmed that it would be seeking to replace Campbell.

Mishcon recently posted an estimated PEP figure of around £600,000, with a 30 per cent rise in revenue to £39.2m.
