Blake Lapthorn lands ASB pension chief

Blake Lapthorn Linnell has snared the head of pensions from rival ASB Law for its own practice. John Hamilton joins the firm as a partner and brings with him solicitor Rupert Graham-Evans. Maria Riccio, head of pensions at Blake Lapthorn Linnell, says: “John and Rupert’s appointments are key to developing the pension team’s well-known service in the South East, especially with opportunities to the east of the region. Their experience and specialist areas will be a significant benefit to clients.”
