Osborne Clarke hires Addleshaws incentives head

Addleshaw Goddard employment incentives head Michael Carter has left the firm for Osborne Clarke.

Carter joined Addleshaws as a partner in 2008 from KPMG, where he worked for 12 years, also leading the accountant’s executive compensation practice.

Prior to joining KPMG, Carter was a solicitor at Pinsent Masons in Leeds.

The hire follows a number of new recruits to Osborne Clarke’s London office, including two Irwin Mitchell corporate partners Edward Persse and Paul Smith.

Irwin Mitchell real estate partners Jo Footitt and Louise Cartwright also joined over the summer.

Carter will sit in Osborne Clarke’s incentives and wider tax practice. The employment team is currently made up of seven partners in the UK.
