Offshore law firm Conyers Dill & Pearman has reorganised its management structure following the appointment of a new chief executive.

Sarah Farrington joins the Bermuda-headquartered firm from Capital G bank, where she served as president and chief executive officer. She will report directly to the executive committee and have a role in developing the firm’s strategy.

Head of corporate and chair of the firm’s executive committee John Collis said: “We’re delighted to appoint someone of Sarah’s calibre in what will be a very demanding role. Sarah has a proven track record, having been directly responsible for overall management and development for the past several years, managing during a period of extended growth.”

Farrington’s appointment coincides with structural changes at the law firm aimed at giving it a more corporate structure.

Areas such as marketing, accounting, technology and research are now all run by industry professionals, leaving partners to focus on developing client relationships.

Conyers is one of the biggest offshore law firms, with operations in Anguilla, Bermuda, the British Virgin Islands, the Cayman Islands, Hong Kong, London and Singapore.

As first reported by The Lawyer (24 April), the firm looks set to launch in Dubai following its registration at the Dubai International Finance Centre.
