Rosenblatt Solicitors is building up its finance capability with the hire of Beachcroft head of financial services Nigel Frudd. Frudd, who has been a partner at Beachcroft for five years, will take up his new role as head of Rosenblatts' financial services department later this year. Rosenblatt managing partner Ian Rosenblatt said: "He's an extremely experienced lawyer, having worked in private practice as well as in-house with Prudential. He brings with him not only a strong knowledge of financial services, but excellent contacts in the markets." Beachcroft senior partner Simon Hodson and financial services partners Chris Wilkes and Trevor Chamberlain will be jointly taking over from Frudd as heads of financial services on a temporary basis.
