Goldring had been a partner at RadcliffesLeBrasseur since joining the firm 2008, prior to which he was a sole practitioner. In 2009 he became head of tax and private client.

Trowers & Hamlins’ senior partner Jennie Gubbins said the hire was integral to the growth of the private client, which it is aiming to grow “not only in the UK, but also across our offices in the Middle East and Far East where more and more clients are demanding such expertise”.

Head of corporate at Trowers & Hamlins Michael Pattinson said Goldring would help “ensure we can better meet the needs of our clients by providing a full-service private wealth practice in the UK and internationally”.

Trowers added seven to its partnership in the lastest round of promotions, with five made up in London, construction lawyer Cheryl Cairns made up in Dubai and housing projects lawyer Kate Boucher in Manchester (3 April 2013).

Last month Trowers & Hamlins announced that following a consultation and “in light of continuing pressures on the UK legal market” they had cut three secretarial and four fee earner roles since March (22 May 2013).
