Hewitons’ Partner Appointed Deputy Lieutenant
Hewitsons is proud to announce Dominic Hopkins’ appointment as Deputy Lieutenant for Northamptonshire in recognition of the service he has rendered for the county. In the United Kingdom a Deputy Lieutenant is an appointment by the Lord-Lieutenant, the Monarch’s personal representative in a county, on command of the Crown. In this role, Dominic will assist the Lord-Lieutenant in his duties, including officiating at ceremonies and other official events in the county (for example, for Citizenship and national or local remembrance) and may represent the Lord-Lieutenant in his or her absence. This means that unusually, the firm now has two of its Partners who hold this Crown appointment; Ben Moorhead, partner in our London office has been Deputy Lieutenant for Kent for four years.
