In brief: Three new partners join SJ Berwin & Co

SJ Berwin & Co has appointed three new partners to the firm's corporate finance, property and securities practices. Graham Nichoson, who left Baker & Mckenzie's Moscow office in July, has joined the firm's corporate finance practice. Nichoson said there was nothing significant in his move from Moscow other than a desire for a career change. He said that despite the city's rough-and-ready reputation he had felt safe working there. Sally Pinkerton joins Berwin's property practice from Titmuss Sainer Dechert, while Tasmin Little joins the firm's securities division after leaving Stephenson Harwood.
