Maitland Chambers chief executive Robert Graham-Campbell has quit the set for private practice and has been appointed as chief executive of Knightsbridge firm Pemberton Greenish.
Graham-Campbell has spent the last 10 years at the bar, joining Maitland Chambers in January 2007 from common law set 7 Bedford Row (1 September 2006).
As chief executive Graham-Campbell will chair Pemberton Greenish’s board, which is made up of its practice heads, while managing partner Robert Barham will relinquish his managerial duties to head up the firm’s residential and specialist conveyancing services.
Graham-Campbell said: “It’s always been my aim to work on both sides of the legal profession. I’ve very much enjoyed my time in chambers, but the right opportunity comes along very rarely and this was it.”
His is the latest in a number of significant exits from the bar, including 39 Essex Street chief executive Michael Meeson, who resigned in February after a stint on gardening leave (4 February 2011) to join Leeds-based Park Court Chambers (4 April 2011).
Landmark Chambers has also parted company with its chief executive, Joanna Poulton, who left the set before Christmas.
