Norton Rose Fulbright has hired two EY partners to co-lead the firm’s legal managed services offering out of the London office.
Alex Fortescue-Webb and Daniel Marks join from EY where they were partners, and will lead Norton Rose’s legal managed services team across Europe, the Middle East and Asia.
Both join after two years at EY, and were both at Thomson Reuters prior to that, according to their LinkedIn profiles.
In their new roles at Norton Rose, the duo will focus on building tech enabled managed services solutions to help in-house legal departments. The legal managed services offering is part of the firm’s global innovation and service delivery programme, NRF Transform.
At EY, Fortescue-Webb co-led contract lifecycle management services globally and cross-sector, with an emphasis on the Europe, Middle East, India and Africa markets.
Peter Scott, Norton Rose Fulbright managing partner Europe, Middle East and Asia said: “Alex and Daniel have outstanding experience and they will enable us to extend the breadth of our offering to our clients through combined advisory, legal and managed services capabilities.”
The global lateral market remains as busy as ever, with some key hires in the last week including Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer bringing in a private equity partner from Dickson Minto in London, whilst Norton Rose bolstered its M&A and capital markets team in Mexico welcoming Andres Nieto.
