South East firm DMH Stallard has hired the head of corporate finance from South East rival ASB Law, the firm's third new partner in as many months.
The hire of Jonathan Grant tips the DMH partnership to 50 members for the first time.
DMH managing partner Tim Aspinall said: "Appointing our 50th partner is a landmark and we're proud to have attracted such talented lawyers. We're confident that these partners will help us achieve our goal of becoming a top 50 UK law firm."
Grant joins DMH's London office and follows Barlow Lyde & Gilbert banking consultant Gwendoline Godfrey (née Griffiths), who joined DMH to head its banking and finance group in March, and Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer IP senior associate Jonathan Ball, who joined DMH as a partner in April.
DMH claims to be the first firm in the South East to have created a dedicated banking practice, which in addition to Godfrey and Grant will include partner Vincent O'Brien and associate Marcus Richards.
As reported by The Lawyer (28 May), DMH is in merger talks with 18-partner London and St Albans firm KSB Law in what will be DMH's second merger in as many years.
