Rowan Dartington executive chairman Graham Coxell said: "We have always viewed Birmingham as a prospective regional hub for us and the proposed acquisition by SJP, which still requires regulatory approval, has further strengthened the rationale for us opening a new centre there.

"The Birmingham office is likely to be one of many new locations in the near future. Both Hitesh and Paul bring with them a wealth of experience and come to us with great reputations in the industry."
