Leeds-based Zenith Chambers has hired former litigator Andrew Argyle to take on the newly created role of chief executive.
The set created the position after the retirement of practice director Rob Butchard, who had spent 47 years as a clerk, the last 10 at Zenith.
Prior to Zenith Argyle was a partner at Lincoln-based Langleys and had spent five years as managing partner of Birmingham-headquartered Shakespeare Putsman.
Argyle said: “I’ve been a commercial litigation lawyer since 1988 and left Langleys last summer. Although I had another offer of partnership I wanted to be involved in the strategic direction of the [organisation] I was going to join and have the opportunity to make a real difference to practice. This move ticks all the boxes.”
Argyle added that, while Butchard had been responsible for internal operations, his position would be client-facing.
