Law firm Kemp Little’s travel and aviation team, led by Farina Azam, has joined Deloitte Legal.
More than 80 lawyers, including 29 partners, are among the 114 Kemp Little employees joining the firm, doubling Deloitte Legal’s lawyer headcount.
It comes after Deloitte Legal completed its acquisition of the technology and digital media-focused firm.
Alistair Pritchard, Deloitte’s lead partner for travel and aviation, said: “This transaction brings a fantastic travel and aviation legal team into Deloitte, led by Farina Azam.
"Farina is extremely well respected across the travel industry, and her expertise and relationships will be a significant addition to our practice. I’ve known Farina for a long time and am really looking forward to working with her.
"Her team will complement our existing legal aviation team, which focuses on airlines, aircraft leasing and maintenance contracts.”
Azam added: “Deloitte already has an extremely knowledgeable and well-respected travel and aviation team, and I’m delighted to be able to add our team’s travel and technology legal expertise to this and offer what I believe is a truly unique, multi-disciplinary service to the travel industry.
"With our combined expertise, Deloitte is extremely well placed to assist the travel and aviation industry through this incredibly challenging time and beyond.”
