BLP partners sweat it out on court for day of tennis with star players

LAWYERS from BLP were sweating it out, not in court yesterday, but on it.

Sporty solicitors including the firms’s co-head of mining Alexander Keepin and EU competition and trade partner Adrian Magnus were rallying with tennis stars – including Andy Murray’s brother Jamie, British ladies’ number one Laura Robson and ex-Davis Cup tennis player Ross Hutchins – for a day of barbecues and games at Roehampton’s National Tennis Centre. Magnus told The Capitalist that he was feeling the heat: “The most refreshing breeze I felt was a ball whizzing past my ear.”

Besides a chance to practice their forehand, the firm’s lawyers organised the day in aid of a worthy cause – the Royal Marsden Cancer Charity.
