A&O chief on Boris’s business council

Allen & Overy managing partner David Morley has become the first lawyer to be appointed to London Mayor Boris ­Johnson’s International Business Advisory Council for London (IBAC London).

The group was set up earlier this month to advise the mayor on how to maintain London’s position as a leading business centre. IBAC London consists of around 50 London business leaders, who will meet for the first time on 5 October.

Sir Martin Sorrell, chief executive officer of marketing conglomerate WPP, will chair the first session.
