We are delighted to end the year with the news that GQ is growing again with the acquisition of boutique employment law firm Camfords LLP.
The acquisition will take effect on 4 January 2016 and follows our recent hires of Partner Dan Pollard and Associates Natasha Adom and Raoul Parekh from Macfarlanes, Clyde & Co and Baker & McKenzie respectively.
Camfords, like GQ, is focused on helping businesses to resolve complex, high value employment law issues and also shares our entrepreneurial, client-focused ethos. We’re very excited about bringing the Camfords team, led by Richard Harvey, into GQ and we are confident that this will further enhance the service we can deliver.
Camfords, which was founded nearly six years ago, has a strong track record in the insurance sector, which further enhances our financial services expertise, and its broader client base fits very well with our focus on the technology, pharmaceutical, professional services and luxury sectors. Richard and his team also have considerable expertise in international projects, which will help us to continue to build our international practice.
We look forward to introducing Richard and his team to you. For more information on this, please go to our press release.
