Bevan Ashford is restructuring its
management team and is appointing a new chief executive officer [CEO] from
outside the firm.The reshuffle of the management team follows Nick
Jarrett-Kerr's announcement of his decision to step down after eight years in
the post. Bevan Ashford has created a new
streamlined corporate-style executive
board for its Bristol
Birmingham and London offices
which represent 70 per
cent of the firm's practice. The new board comprises four elected partners plus
the chief executive and replaces the old six-partner board
which was appointed
by Jarrett-Kerr. The new members are project head Stephen Hughes and commercial
litigation head Patricia Mitchell from Bristol
and employment head David
Widdowson and clinical negligence head Christian Dingwall from London. The new
corporate framework has been put in place to improve the strategic positioning
of the firm and speed up the decision-making process. It is understood that the
new CEO is unlikely to be a lawyer. Jarrett-Kerr is expected to stay on as
chairman.
