This article reports that the law firm Hammonds has suffered again at the hands of Hunton & Williams LLP, losing its third partner to the U.S. law firm. This is the sixteenth partner to quit the firm since January 2004. Corporate partner and head of the financial services market group Jonathan Marsh will rejoin his former partners Martin Thomas and John Deacon at Hunton on March 1, after spending just two years at Hammonds. The latest departures brings the total number of partners to have left the firm since January 2004 to 16, including seven so far this year. At the beginning of February, the firm announced a 12 per cent cut in partner drawings as a result of an anticipated drop in profit.
