MAB leaves RJW family team bereft

Russell Jones & Walker (RJW) head of family and private client Jeremy Abraham has joined Matthew Arnold and Baldwin (MAB).

The move leaves RJW’s family practice with no lawyers, with the only other lawyer on maternity leave. But an RJW spokesperson said the practice would not be closed.

Abraham joins MAB as a partner and will be based in London.

Iain Donaldson, head of MAB’s private client division, said the firm aimed to have a private client team spread over London, Watford and Milton Keynes.
