ASB rejigs management top-tier

South East firm ASB Law has overhauled its management structure following the departure of its chief executive earlier this year. At a recent partner conference, lawyers voted to introduce the role of managing partner and hire a new finance director, who together with the senior partner will form a management team. Last week (24 May) the firm elected head of commercial litigation Andrew Clinton as managing partner for a two-year term. Senior partner Russell Bell has been re-elected as senior partner for three years. The firm expects to appoint a new finance director in the next few months. As first reported by The Lawyer (20 February), the firm’s non-lawyer chief executive Christopher Honeyman-Brown left ASB to pursue “other interests”.
