This article reports that the law firm Lovells has been hit with the departure of another partner from its Berlin, Germany-based office. Lovells' Berlin-based managing partner Volkmar Jesch has quit to team up with tax and real estate partner Nicholas Ley, who is leaving at the same time, to launch their own boutique. Neither partner has been affected by Lovells' radical plans to axe 25 partners in a bid to improve flagging profitability. Lovells has provisionally appointed corporate partner Johannes Meinel to lead the firm's eight-partner Berlin office.
