Herbert Smith Freehills (HSF) has ramped up its use of international secondments in the wake of last year's UK-Australia tie-up, as the firm moves to more closely integrate its business around the world. The firm's post-merger integration push has seen the number of employees on secondment around the world rise from 155 during 2011 to 283 in 2012 – an increase of more than 80%. A total of 70 secondees have moved between the firm's offices since last October, the month the merger went live – more than double the 26 who moved offices in the equivalent period during 2011-12. Approximately half of the moves since the merger have comprised staff transferring to and from Australia.
