Veteran Nicholson was a partner at Olswang for 13 years, and built up the firm’s technology and communications practice. She has worked part-time at the firm in recent years.
She joins Clydes to develop the firm’s technology department in London and Guildford.
Clydes partner Andrew Holderness said that more of the firm’s clients were wanting Clydes to handle technology and communications issues, prompting Nicholson’s hire.
Nicholson will work particularly closely with the firm’s corporate team.
