Media and entertainment firm Harbottle & Lewis has appointed a new managing partner, with tax partner Glen Atchison taking over from Lawrence Abramson.
Atchison will take up his new role at the start of June, after leading the tax practice for 10 years. He has been on the firm's management committee since 2006.
Atchison said: "This is an exciting time for the firm and for the key industries in which many of our clients move. The traditional business models for clients operating in the media and entertainment industries are changing."
Abramson had been managing partner at Harbottle & Lewis for three years. During this time the firm has expanded into telecommunications and technology, hiring Field Fisher Waterhouse communications chief Tony Ballard last summer.
