This article reports that top competition partner Stephen Kinsella has resigned from Herbert Smith. The firm will hold Kinsella, who works in its Brussels office, to a six month gardening leave. The six-month term is fixed by Herbert Smith's partnership deed. However, other high-profile departees were not held to it, including Robert Volterra, who went to Latham & Watkins LLP earlier this year, and Gerald Bland, who joined Wragge & Co. in 2002. After 20 years, Kinsella has decided to leave with a view to considering other options.
