RJW boosts senior exec unit with adviser

Employment specialist Russell Jones & Walker (RJW) has appointed Julian Roskill as an adviser as the firm looks to broaden the profile of its senior executive unit.

Roskill was the head of Mayer Brown’s employment team in London for 20 years before ­standing down as a partner in 2008 to take up an advisory role.

Roskill, who joins the team on 1 January, said: “As I’m now focusing on helping board members and other senior managers, it’s logical to move from a top employment practice with a large corporate client base to a top employee-focused practice with a senior executive unit.”
