David Nathan has been confirmed as the national managing partner, ending a four-month hunt for a new leader after Paul Malliate resigned in July.
Nathan's departure from Dunhill came as he fought to rebuild the embattled firm after 27 Sydney partner and 125 lawyers defected to the legal branch of Big Five accounting firm, PricewaterhouseCoopers.
