PwC law practice hit by high-level defections to Ernst & Young

Two top partners at PricewaterhouseCooper's associated law firm, Arnheim Tite & Lewis, have defected to Ernst & Young following reports of disagreements over the way the PwC practice is to be developed.

Managing partner, Christopher Tite and the firm’s former joint senior partner Mark Lewis have both jumped ship to set up an associated law firm for PwC’s Big Five rival, Ernst & Young.

The news comes less than a year after AT&L suffered the loss of six partners to KPMG where they set up its associated law firm, KLegal.

It is understood that Tite and Lewis left following disagreements over the way the UK practice is to be developed, it has been reported today.

AT&L confirmed the resignations in a short statement, which said that Chris Arnheim had assumed responsibility for managing the firm.
