Bogan sets up his own firm in Richmond

Anthony Bogan, chair of the Solicitors Association and maverick Law Society Council member who campaigned to split the Law Society, has set up a practice in his constituency base of Surrey.

Bogan left Saunders Palmer Ure in Hounslow, Middlesex last week to set up with partner Alex Alagappa, chair of the British Legal Association. The new firm, Bogan Gilson, is based in Richmond.

Bogan, who lives in Richmond, previously worked in Saunders' Richmond office, but this office demerged early this year and Bogan had to transfer to the Hounslow office.
