Wacks Caller raids Davies Wallis Foyster for litigation dept head

Kit Sorrell joins the 13-partner firm as head of the commercial litigation department after 17 years at the 42-partner Liverpool firm – one of the biggest in the North West.

Wacks Caller says Sorrell will bring all his clients with him, including national property developers and national breweries.

The firm's managing partner says: "It's a major coup that Kit has chosen our firm. Since Michael Kennedy joined from Eversheds four years ago, our commercial litigation department has quadrupled in size and Kit will only further strenghten the team."

Sorrell says: "What attracted me to Wacks Caller was its reputation for being a "go for it" firm with a high quality commercial client bases. I'm looking forward to furthering my career with a group of dynamic, like-minded people."

Sorrell brings with him long time assistant, Anna Bennett, when he joins Wacks Caller on 31 January
