In brief: PFI specialist moves to Bevan Ashford

Leading public sector private finance initiative (PFI) expert Chris Jarman (pictured right) has given up his partnership with Sharpe Pritchard in London to join Bristol-based Bevan Ashford as an associate. He said family reasons were the overriding factor behind the “wrenching move”. Jarman added that leaving the firm, which he joined as an articled clerk more than 11 years ago, and giving up a partnership was a “grinding decision”.
