Fox Williams LLP is 'a fantastic firm with all-round strength in the partnership area'. The group handles contentious matters, such as litigation and arbitration, but is most noted for its non-contentious work, which includes the establishment of foreign law firms in the UK, mergers, partner and team moves, conversion to LLP and document drafting. 'A strong presence in this field', practice head and name partner Tina Williams advised Bond Dickinson LLP on its transatlantic combination with US-based Womble Carlyle Sandridge & Rice to form Womble Bond Dickinson (UK) LLP. She also advised Greenberg Traurig, LLP on the acquisition of a team of 30 lawyers, including 6 partners, from the now-defunct King & Wood Mallesons. Highlights for Daniel Sutherland included advising Assemble LLP on a restructuring and Sedgewick Detert Moran & Arnold on the winding-up of its London office as part of the closure of its affiliated US firm in January 2018. Gavin Foggo, who 'commands confidence' and exhibits 'great judgement', is noted as 'the man you want on your team for partnership litigation'. Experienced in professional practice M&A, setting up and structuring partnerships and advising financial services firms on remuneration structures, Doug Preece is another key contact.
