Beachcrofts boosts financial services with FFW hire

Beachcroft Wansbroughs is strengthening its financial services team with the hire of a partner from Field Fisher Waterhouse (FFW).

Robert Guest joins Beachcrofts’ London office after three and a half years at FFW, which he joined after co-founding investment management company SG Asset Management in 1998.

Financial services head Nigel Frudd said Guest’s hire fitted the strategy of the team, which is aiming to offer integrated services to financial services organisations.

Beachcrofts has also announced that partner Virginia Clegg will take over from Michael Bothamley as commercial property head from 1 May. Bothamley, regional senior partner for Bristol, will continue as an active fee-earning member of the property department.
