Was this only a matter of time? The news that Ashurst global head of corporate Stephen Lloyd is quitting the firm comes in the wake of huge upheaval post its merger with Australian firm Blake Dawson.
Critically that turbulence last week saw a new global board elected, one that had no place for Ashurst’s former senior partner Charlie Geffen. Instead Ashurst partners elected litigator Ben Tidswell into the newly-formed chairman role, a move that has cost Geffen the leadership post he has held since 2008.
As we report today, Lloyd has held the post of corporate head at Ashurst since the role was first established in July 2010 as part of a wider corporate revamp.
Now there has been an even bigger management revamp, with a raft of new board members announced this week, there is only one question on everybody’s lips: Who’s next?
