SJ Berwin sustains more losses to Olswang

Olswang has taken another SJ Berwin lawyer, this time recruiting a film finance expert.

SJ Berwin associate James Kay is joining Olswang where he will become a partner. Kay, on moving from Olswang, will be reunited with former SJ Berwin film finance partner Jacqueline Hurt.

Since its inception in 1981, a plethora of lawyers have moved to Olswang from SJ Berwin where Olswang chief executive Jonathan Goldstein spent two years. Past laterals include corporate partner Graeme Levy and commercial litigator David Stewart.

However just last week, SJ Berwin managed to keep hold of two private equity partners, Jonathan Pittal and Perry Yam, who had resigned to join Olswang.
