ANTHONY ROSE, a former partner with a City law firm, has launched Hampden Law, an independent practice, with hopes it could become one of the first legal practices to receive outside external investment once the Legal Services Act comes into force next year.
Hampden Law, which advises on commercial work, already has business support from insurance services firm, The Hampden Group.
The legal outfit receives external, accounting, secretarial and IT support from Hampden Chambers, a subsidiary of the group.
Rose is hoping that after the Act comes in, Hampden Law will become part of the Hampden Group and serve as the group’s legal team.
He said: “We perhaps will be acquired by the Hampden Group as its legal team next year.”
