Epstein Becker Green and Deloitte Legal’s Alliance for Employment Law and Workforce Management Services was discussed in Legal Business and Bloomberg Law as Deloitte U.K. bolsters its employment law capabilities with recent hires.
Following is an excerpt from the Bloomberg Law article by Sam Skolnik:
The legal division of Deloitte’s U.K. branch has announced two new partners, including former London-based Squire Patton Boggs attorney Liz Pierson and the former managing partner of British firm Travers Smith.
Andrew Lilley will head up Deloitte’s U.K.-based employment law practice, where he will advise clients on workforce and employee relations issues. He was managing partner at Travers Smith from 2010-14, a year before he stepped down from the firm to teach. …
Lilley’s hire comes two months after Deloitte formed an alliance with the U.S. law firm Epstein Becker Green, through which the firm and Deloitte’s legal division will offer employment law and workforce management services to clients.
Through the deal, the law firm—which boasts a 200-lawyer employment, labor and workforce practice group—will provide “joint service offerings” that will include advice on global mergers, acquisitions and reorganizations.
