The Queen has found a new personal solicitor after her current solicitor, Farrer & Co senior partner Henry Boyd-Carpenter, announced his retirement
He will be succeeded as Solicitor to Her Majesty The Queen by the Hon Mark Bridges, also at Farrers. Bridges leads Farrers' international private client team. He has experience in acting for high-profile figures as he is also solicitor for the Duchy of Lancaster. Farrers, which has acted for the Royal Family for 70 years, also acts for Prince Philip the Duke of Edinburgh. The firm lost Prince Charles as a client when his solicitor Fiona Shackleton moved to Payne Hicks Beach. Boyd-Carpenter will be replaced as senior partner by Robert Clinton, who heads the firm's media team. Farrers has also just recruited Denton Wilde Sapte private client and charities partner Alastair Collett. He starts at Farrers on 1 May this year. Collett's move further strengthens the already formidable private client team at the firm. Farrers also took on partner Jim Edmondson and his team from Nabarro Nathanson last September.
