Boodle Hatfield has completed a major overhaul of its senior management after reorganising the firm to return to its core practice areas in real estate, tax and financial planning. Property head Richard Maughan will replace managing partner Chris Putt, who will continue to head corporate. The 280-year-old practice has also appointed a new chief executive in Nick Temple, formerly a senior partner with Andersen, where he was worldwide managing partner for technology risk consulting. The replacement of corporate expert Putt with property specialist Maughan also symbolises a change of focus at the firm. Boodle Hatfield had attempted to build up corporate but was hampered by the downturn in deal flow. “Everyone would agree that it’s been a tough market in corporate. We were given the sharp edge,” said Maughan. First revealed on www.thelawyer.com 28 January
