Orchard in bid to raise international profile with former LSE chief exec

City firm Orchard has appointed former London Stock Exchange (LSE) chief executive Gavin Casey in a bid to help the firm pursue its ambition to become an international law firm.
Casey, who will act as special counsel to the partnership on a part-time basis, was credited with transforming the LSE from a mutual society to a public limited company.
“The job at Orchard represents an exciting opportunity to help with the growth of the firm, both in the UK and internationally,” said Casey.
Orchard is currently a 12-partner, full-service firm. But despite its small size, the firm has had international connections for some time.
Property partner Roger Coral said: “We’ve always had strong links with US firms, and we’re looking to put more effort into that.”
