Arnheim quits Landwell

Landwell’s former senior partner Chris Arnheim has left the firm just a few months after stepping down from the top job at PricewaterhouseCoopers’ accountancy-tied firm.

In a surprise move last December, Arnheim moved into what the firm termed a “full-time client role”, despite the fact that he had done little fee-earning since joining Landwell at its inception in 1997, spending the majority of his time as senior partner.

The accountancy-tied firm has now said in a statement that Arnheim has spent the last six months on “developing and running lawyers’ skills training courses”. He will leave the firm at the end of June to set up a new business running lawyers’ skills training courses, including Landwell’s skills training programme.

The firm’s new senior partner Leon Flavell said in a statement: “I and my partners at Landwell wish Chris every success for the future.”
