The former managing partner of Garretts’ Reading office, now Olswang, has resurfaced at growing Thames Valley firm Moorcrofts. Commercial property specialist John Castell joined Olswang as a partner last year when the City firm snapped up Garretts’ Reading office in a two-week deal. Castell’s role as regionial head disappeared in the deal. He left the firm earlier this year.
