Linklaters' executive decision" /> There is much speculation over in Silk Street on who is going to replace Giles White as Linklaters' overall head of finance. The two obvious frontrunners - capital markets head Nick Eastwell and banking head John Tucker - recently went for the managing partner job, only to be bested by Simon Davies.
