CM Murray LLP

'Top-flight' boutique CM Murray LLP houses the best contentious partnership lawyers in the City. The team is most known for advising international law firms and other professional services firms on partner exits, team moves, restrictive covenants, discrimination and whistleblowing issues. It has developed a particular niche in handling sexual harassment allegations made by and against partners; a service that was greatly boosted in February 2018 by the arrival from Slater and Gordonof Samantha Mangwana (who has 'very strong expertise in discrimination cases'). 'Head and shoulders above her peers in the industry', founding partner and team leader Clare Murray is the 'go-to' lawyer for partnership disputes and is noted for her 'superb judgement' and significant experience. 'Brilliant' Sarah Chilton is recommended for international partnership disputes, while 'excellent' Partner Anna Birtwistle specialises in advising partners in relation to restrictive covenants. David Fisher has significant experience in team moves, lateral hires and restrictive covenant enforcement. Although the team lost Bettina Bender to Winckworth Sherwood LLP  in June 2018, it gained 'highly capable' non-contentious partnership expert Zulon Begum, who joined from Addleshaw Goddard.
