• DLA Piper‘s global people officer Robert Halton is leaving the firm after 11 years to pursue other opportunities.
Halton said his departure is entirely amicable and that he is keen to try something different after his stint at the firm.
Nigel Knowles, DLA Piper’s joint chief executive, said Halton had made an important contribution to the firm over the last decade. “I speak for many people across the organisation when I say how much I’ve enjoyed working with Robert,” added Knowles.
DLA Piper is now set to headhunt a replacement for Halton.
