Steptoe loses top people to Salans

Tony Wollenberg (left), the founder and former managing partner of Rakisons, now merged with Steptoe & Johnson, and former head of corporate Jonathan Polin, are to join the London office of Salans (previously Salans Hertzfeld & Heilbronn). Wollenberg and Polin masterminded the merger with Steptoes but decided their practices could be best developed elsewhere. “I have decided to bring my gaming expertise to a practice which is in growth mode,” said Wollenberg. The pair will be joined by two associates from Steptoe.
