Browne Jacobson has bolstered its insurance and public risk team with the hire of two senior lawyers from DAC Beachcroft.
Tony Child joins as a consultant while Ros Foster becomes an associate.
Child has acted in a number of leading public law cases over his 40-year career, including Porter v Magill and Livingstone v Standards Board for England.
Foster’s previous roles meanwhile include working as Head of Fitness to Practise Legal Services at the General Dental Council and various positions in local government.
Richard Barlow, partner at Browne Jacobson, said: “We are delighted to welcome Tony and Ros to join our team. We are confident that their skills and experience will complement and enhance our offering to the public sector, particularly in relation to public and administrative and local government law, such that we can continue to provide both new and existing clients with an excellent service.”
