A five-lawyer Linklaters private client team is leaving to join Fieldfisher, just three years after the Magic Circle firm started rebuilding the practice. 

Leading the exit is Linklaters’ head of trusts, Peter Golden, who will be accompanied by managing associate Alistair Robertson who joins Fieldfisher as a partner, as well as three other fee-earners and a personal assistant, according to a person with knowledge of the situation. The move will take place in October, the person said.
