Barlow Lyde & Gilbert chief executive Clint Evans is set to leave the firm with chief operating officer (COO) David Jabbari stepping into the role.
The firm created the role of chief executive for Evans (pictured) in March 2007 (19 March 2007).
It came after BLG suffered a number of high profile departures, including financial services regulatory chief Chris Warren-Smith, who joined US firm Fulbright & Jaworski, and Singapore boss David Johnston, who joined aviation boutique Gates & Partners.
At the time then senior partner Richard Dedman said of Evans’ appointment: “There’s a growing pool of professional management talent out there to tap and I think law firms will increasingly look to make this sort of appointment in the modern legal marketplace.”
Dedman stood down in May 2008 after 30 years as a partner. He was two years into his second five-year term as senior partner and was succeeded by Simon Konsta (29 May 2008).
Jabbari joined the firm as an equity partner in October 2008 from Allen & Overy, where he was global head of knowledge management (20 October 2008).
