Who's Moving Where In Wealth Management? - Ashfords, Brooks Macdonald

The latest senior moves in wealth management from across Europe.

UK Southwestern law firm Ashfords has appointed family solicitor Megan Prideux, to continue its private client area expansion.

Prideaux, who previously worked at Thrings, follows recent arrivals Samantha Newton and Katie Webber. She has regularly advised on financial settlements as well as cohabitation and pre and post-nuptial agreements which include international assets. Prideaux has worked on Children Act matters, non-molestation and occupation orders for families, and has negotiated on behalf of her clients in respect of property disputes where they are neither married nor in a civil partnership. She is also a member of Resolution and is looking forward to becoming collaboratively trained.
