The article reports that the sale of Elton John's management company Twenty-First Artists to the Sanctuary Group became a partner reunion for the defunct London firm Frere Cholmeley Bischoff. Eversheds' instruction came to partner Bruce Gripton through Presland. The two were both partners at Frere Cholmeley, which was taken over by Eversheds in 1998. The firm advised Elton for more than two decades and Presland was Elton's litigation adviser for many years. Twenty-First Artists has acted as manager to recording artists.
