The article reports that North East England-based litigation specialist Crutes has lost Tim Smith, head of the firm's employment team, to local rival Ward Hadaway. Smith's departure has resulted in the loss of one of the company's key health service clients, Northumbria Health Care, to Eversheds. This development has also jeopardized Crutes' goal to widen its practice from its once-core base of insurance litigation.
