Ashurst corporate boss to step down

Ashurst‘s London managing partner of corporate Roger Finbow has announced that he will retire in May 2009.

He is yet to decide on his next move.

No successor has so far been named to Finbow, whose remit includes the corporate finance, private equity and corporate/M&A groups.

There is likely to be no official vote to replace Finbow, with the new head being decided through consensus.

Adrian Clark remains European head of corporate at the top 10 firm.

Finbow was also head of Ashurst’s recruitment team for 12 years.

He has already largely stepped down from that role, with private equity partner David Carter taking up the reins.
