In brief: New RJW dept focuses on poisoning law

Russell Jones & Walker (RJW) has become the first firm to dedicate a department to the area of chemical poisoning law, after recruiting expert in the field Alan Care from rival practice Leigh Day & Co to lead the new department. RJW aims to recruit lawyers to the department in the next few months and may recruit academics on a full-time basis to handle the scientific data involved in the cases.
