Edwin Coe has appointed Tim Nash as CEO following the retirement of Mike Elliott, who had been at the firm for 30 years.
Finance partner Nash took up the post after leaving Eversheds, where he held the non-legal role of group financial controller.
Prior to this he worked at PricewaterhouseCoopers, Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer and Clifford Chance. Edwin Coe senior partner Chris Berry said: “We’ll be sorry to lose Mike. He’s guided us through many changes and developments through his 30 years at the firm.”
