Bevan Brittan raids Beachcrofts for health team

Regional player Bevan Brittan is accelerating its push into the health sector with the hire of a team from Beachcroft Wansbroughs.

Beachcrofts partner Melanie Print is joining Bevan Brittan’s Birmingham office with three assistants. The hires follow the relocation of regulatory partner Richard Annandale and clinical negligence partner Adrian Dagnall to Birmingham to spearhead the heath practice in the Midlands and North of England.

Bevan Brittan’s health group, led by partner Steve Hughes, had a leading role in the development of the NHS Lift programme. The group currently acts for over 200 NHS clients and a third of all Foundation Trusts.

Chief executive Stuart Whitfield said: “The appointment demonstrates our investment in the Birmingham practice.”
