ASB partner trio defects to Goodman Derrick

London firm Goodman Derrick has swooped on ASB Law, hiring three partners to strengthen its family and private client teams. ASB’s former head of private client and family Ursula Danagher has joined Goodman Derrick. Working with the firm’s head of litigation Tim Langton, Danagher will be developing her new firm’s existing family practice. In September 2005 two more ASB partners, Lindsey Alexander and Clare Jeffries, will also join Goodman Derrick. Alexander is also a family specialist, while Jeffries handles private client work.
