Firm mourns loss of partner

LAWYERS at Denton Hall are mourning the death of corporate group head Andrew Britton in a car crash. Britton's funeral was held last week following the accident on 22 April. Colleague Simon Brown says he “had a rare combination of intellect, inventiveness and wit”.

He describes Britton as “a brilliant lawyer whose sense of fun enthused all those around him”.

Britton, 44, an experienced amateur racing driver, was secretary to the Ferrari Owners' Club. The crash is being investigated by the police.
