News - 07 February 2013

Senior Herbert Smith Freehills litigation partner Simon Bushell is set to join the London office of US firm Latham & Watkins in the latest exit from the firm.

Bushell currently co-chairs Herbert Smith Freehills’ London corporate fraud and asset tracing practice and is head of the firm’s crisis management practice. He specialises in Russia-related claims and founded its Russian disputes practice.

Bushell led for the government of Tajikistan in the big-billing Talco case, in which the state-owned smelter claimed to have been defrauded out of hundreds of millions of pounds.

Bushell’s departure marks the third exit by a Senior Herbert Smith Freehills partner in the firm’s disputes team in roughly six months, following Linklaters’ hire of regulatory duo Martyn Hopper and Nikunj Kiri.

In 2011 corporate crime partner Peter Burrell left the firm to join Willkie Farr & Gallagher’s City office as part of its launch of a UK anti-bribery practice.
