TWO recently-formed law firms have strengthened their practices with the appointment of new lawyers.
City-based Orchard, formed last March from a management buy-out of Berman's London office, has taken on a partner and a solicitor for its commercial property arm.
The recruits at Orchard are Roger Coral, a former partner at DJ Freeman and consultant at Hopkins & Wood, who joins as partner, and Hannah Marshall, who qualified three years ago and comes from Chancery Lane firm Rakisons.
Gordons is moving premises as well as building up its practice, now made up of five partners and no assistants. It has relocated from Macklin Street to Great James Street, WC1.
