CMS Cameron McKenna has appointed a former colleague of DLA Piper senior partner Tony Angel as director of people to manage the relationship with its HR operation, which has been outsourced to Integreon.
The firm said former Linklaters lawyer Jennifer Emery will focus on its firmwide “strategy for people”. She will be in charge of HR, graduate recruitment and learning and development, and will lead the ’Recognising High Performance’ scheme that keeps track of associate performance. She will also be the point of contact for the relationship between Camerons and Integreon, where the firm moved its HR operations earlier this year.
Emery practised as a corporate lawyer at Linklaters and later worked as executive manager alongside Angel, who was the firm’s managing partner. She was later chief operating officer of the magic circle firm’s global corporate practice.
