Suspended Hammonds partner resigns

Andrew Visintin, the equity partner and London head of finance who was suspended from Hammonds in September, has now officially left the firm.

Visintin had been away on sick leave for several months before a rare decision by the Hammonds executive to exercise a rule in its partnership deed allowing the management to keep partners away from the office.

Hammonds managing partner Chris Jones said: “Andrew Visintin has indicated his intention to leave the firm, and we have accepted his resignation. Andrew was absent from the firm for several months due to ill health.”

The Lawyer was unable to contact Visintin.
