The Head of shipping at Hextalls Dominic Lang has been appointed as the firm’s new chief executive.

Partner Lang will take over from Matthew Clark, who will be replacing head of employment Jane Liddington as the firm’s second non-executive chair.

As part of his responsibilities as chief executive, Lang will focus on maximising the firm’s growth strategy.

He said: “I look forward to working with the executive board as we build on the momentum we’ve gained in expanding our practice in the insurance markets, creating additional growth in our corporate and employment departments and capitalising upon our profile in the sporting arena.”

Last year The Lawyer reported (3 July 2006) on the firm’s new management structure and the appointment of Liddington as the first non-executive chair.

The post of chair involves the mentoring of staff and external communications.
