South-WEST firm Bevan Ashford has recruited a corporate partner to spearhead a drive for new business.
George Wilkinson, a former partner at Bristol firm Lyons Davidson, joined the South West firm last week.
Wilkinson, 43, who is a specialist in company law, corporate finance and occupational pensions, joined the firm's Plymouth office which is traditionally strong on public sector work.
But Simon Rous, head of Bevan Ashford's South West company department, said the Plymouth office was now set to make a pitch for corporate work. "George comes with credentials. He will make an impression on the Plymouth marketplace and provide a platform for our growing business," he said.
Malcolm Iley, managing partner at the Plymouth
office, said: "This is a high-quality, key appointment and we are very fortunate to secure George Wilkinson, who has considerable expertise in his specialist fields."
