DWF implements new management structure

North West firm DWF has revamped its entire management system. The firm has appointed HR group head Andrew Leaitherland as the firm’s first managing partner, at the same time as disbanding its former management board in favour of implementing a new strategic team. Senior partner Jim Davies continues in that role, although his day-to-day operational duties have been passed to Leaitherland. First reported on www.thelawyer.com 31 January
