RJW raids Gorvins for temporary Milton Keynes launch

Regulatory partner Marriott is set to join the firm next month along with a further partner and eight fee earners from Gorvins’ Milton Keynes office. It is understood that RJW intends to keep the office open for 12 months while it assesses whether to transfer staff to London.

The firm will also be joined by head of family Amanda McAlister, who is based in Gorvin’s Stockport office. It is believed that she will take four fee earners to RJW’s Manchester office.

Earlier this month, RJW hired Field Fisher Waterhouse partner Rosemary Rollason to its equity partnership to head the regulation and professional discipline team (11 January 2009).
