Lovells has just completed the first stage of a year-long corporate governance review
The current board and executive committee are to be replaced by an international executive committee and a partnership council with new management appointments. The current UK-dominated, 10-member executive committee will be replaced by a more international body that will handle business strategy. Committee members will be regional heads from Lovells' overseas offices and heads of core practice areas. The second body, the partnership council, will be elected by partners once the executive committee is in place to ensure that the same partners cannot hold office on both bodies. It will replace the current 15-member board, which is part nominated by the current executive committee and part elected. First revealed on www.thelawyer.com/lawyernews on 7 August
