Rowland said she was attracted to the firm b the quality of people working there and the chance to work with “fantastic clients and contacts”.
Managing partner Julie Walsh said: “We are delighted to welcome Lynne to the Private Client team. Her wealth of valuable experience will assist us in developing and expanding our service to clients in this area.”
