In brief: White & Bowker appoints top trio

Hampshire firm White & Bowker has made three new appointments as part of strategic changes to itsmanagement structure. Managing partner Alastair Rhodes says the arrival of directors of personnel, marketing and information technology will let the lawyers “concentrate on what they are good at, namely giving legal advice, rather than trying to manage the practice”. Anne Smith (left) is head of personnel, Martin Davies (centre) is responsible for marketing and Ray Teesdale (right) is in charge of IT. The firm plans to appoint a director of finance in the near future.
