In brief: Norton Rose hires Paisner & Co partner

Norton Rose has boosted its employee benefits practice with the recruitment of leading partner in the field David Cohen from Paisner & Co. Cohen's presence at Paisners for the past 12 years has kept the firm among the top employee benefits practices in London. He was the sole partner there specialising in the field. At Norton Rose he will head a new employee benefits practice alongside two tax partners and three assistants who work only part time in the employee benefits field.
