In brief: It was bad news for Mick

It was bad news for Mick, but good news for Jerry's lawyer, the high-profile Sandra Davis.

Supermodel Jerry Hall, who filed for divorce from her adulterous Rolling Stone husband Mick Jagger, has appointed Davis at niche media law specialists Mishcon de Reya as her legal representative. Davis, who has also handled the divorce of Princess Diana among others, specialises in “high-value” clients.

Mishcons confirmed last Friday that it was working on behalf of Hall and that Davis, head of its family department, was handling the claim.

A Mishcons insider says: “Sandra has got a good reputation. She has been here for 15 years and has a reputation for handling high-value clients. One thing she is very good at is she is very discreet.”

The firm's family department has an estimated annual turnover of £1.3m.

Hall, no doubt, may hope to turn over Jagger – worth an estimated £145m.
