Dibb Lupton Alsop's highly-regarded insolvency partner Paul Gordon-Saker has been replaced as head of the insolvency department after a management review.
Leeds partner Peter Cranston was appointed head on 8 April and will be spending two days a week in London as part of his new role. However, The Lawyer understands that Cranston was not the first to be offered the role. Mark Jackson also based in Leeds is said to have turned the job down.
Cranston said Gordon-Saker's appointment as head was part of the Alsop Wilkinson/Dibb Lupton Broomhead merger proposal. "We are now a merged firm and Paul's job is done."
Gordon-Saker said he wanted to spend more time on fee-earning and less on management.
In March last year the department lost two partners and two assistants, including Dibb Lupton Broomhead head of department, Tony Bugg, to Linklaters. The four followed partner Richard Wright, who had left six months earlier.
