West Country firm Ashfords has hired Reed Smith commercial partner David Heard in a major coup for the Exeter-based outfit.
Heard, who specialises in the financial services and insurance sectors, will join the company's commercial team in Ashfords' Plymouth office. Reed Smith managing partner Greg Jordan said: "David has made a valuable contribution to this firm, particularly in his specialist area of financial services.
He will be missed both as a friend and a colleague." Heard had been a partner at Reed Smith for 17 years before deciding to move out of London to the South West with his family.
