The University of London has hired the Wellcome Trust’s longstanding general counsel John Stewart as head of legal services.
The role is newly-created and Stewart’s appointment follows the recent retirement of Ian Budden, the university’s legal and constitutional adviser. Stewart will be responsible for providing legal advice to the university’s management and board of trustees, particularly in contract and commercial law, intellectual property rights and trust and charities law.
Stewart joined the Wellcome Trust in 1995 from Shearman & Sterling, having previously advised the healthcare charity on its 1986 flotation.
He has been replaced by Susan Wallcraft, who joined the trust in July last year from Pfizer, where she was assistant general counsel.
