Speechly brings in Farrers partner

He joins the City firm after 24 years with Farrers. “I’m still very fond of Farrers, but in my area, with its focus on private banking and regulation, the time had come to look for somewhere with more scale,” said Bayliss. “Speechly Bircham has a real concentration on financial ­services as a group.” Speechly has grown its financial services team by 50 per cent in the past year.
