Pace Micro Technology, the maker of digital television set-top boxes, has reshuffled its legal department, appointing a new general counsel and hiring an IP specialist from Pinsent Masons.
Anthony Dixon, previously director of group legal services at Pace, has been appointed general counsel and company secretary of the West Yorkshire-based business.
Richard Clack, an ex-associate at Pinsents, will focus on technology licensing and intellectual property rights litigation. Former general counsel Jason Irvine-Geddis has been promoted to director of set-top box legal services, and legal counsel Jane Connor becomes senior legal counsel responsible for outsource contract requirements.
The changes follow the recent promotion of the company's US in-house attorney David Gellen to general counsel and executive vice-president of Pace Americas, based in Boca Raton, Florida.
The changes in the legal department follow John Dyson's September announcement of his plans to retire as chief executive of Pace.
