The Guardian has poached the head of litigation at Times Newspapers to replace Nuala Cosgrove as legal chief after she left for media regulator Ofcom at the end of last year.
Gillian Phillips has been appointed director of editorial legal services at Guardian News and Media (GNM) and will report to editor Alan Rusbridger.
Phillips, a former Clifford Chance trainee, had been at The Times for eight years and is a former in-house lawyer for the BBC.
She said: "It's a great role and I look forward to joining GNM and working with Alan Rusbridger and the team."
Cosgrove was GNM's top lawyer for six years, during which time she worked on several high profile cases.
She advised The Guardian on its exposé of BAE Systems' alleged bribery of Saudi Arabian officials on the publication of the cash-for-honours scandal.
Phillips will take up the post in May and work alongside commercial legal chief Sarah Davis.
Rusbridger said of the appointment: "Her wealth of experience in print, online and broadcast will be enormously valuable as we continue to fulfil our media ambitions."
