Harbottle names barrister as charity head

Harbottle & Lewis has hired a former Radcliffe Chambers barrister as head of its charities group.

Alison Maclennan, of 12 years’ call, is a member of the executive committee of the ­Charity Law Association.

Harbottle managing partner Glen Atchison said he hoped to expand the practice further with Maclennan at the helm.

Atchison took over as managing partner in May this year, having spent 10 years as head of the firm’s tax division.

Maclennan starts as charity head on 15 September.
