Mr Bushell is saying farewell to Latham & Watkins after three years, having joined the firm’s London office in 2013 from Herbert Smith Freehills. His switch to Signature Litigation comes as the boutique firm continues to lock down a growing number of top-tier commercial litigation mandates, including ongoing advice to the RBoS Shareholders Action Group in its multibillion-pound dispute with the Royal Bank of Scotland, and a new mandate from mining giant ENRC. Mr Bushell commented: ‘Signature has a formidable reputation as a conflict-free, exclusively disputes focused firm, with a fearless approach to handling complex cases. I am relishing the opportunity to add to their compelling platform.’ His move will raise Signature’s headcount to 10 partners and 30 fee earners.
