Joanna Grant joins as a partner in the firm’s financial and commercial practice. She was previously senior associate at Allen & Overy.

Pauline Rozario will be a consultant to the firm specialising in professional indemnity insurance disputes, with a particular focus on disputes involving solicitors. She has over 20 years’ experience in handling such claims, initially at the Solicitors Indemnity Fund and latterly at Zurich Financial Services.
