John Churchill, the legal chairman at Pricewaterhouse-Coopers (PwC) Legal, has left the firm less than two years into his term.

Churchill said he wished to pursue other business interests, although these are not yet known. He said: “PwC is going in a new direction. I was interested in getting it to where it is now.” It is not known who will replace him as chairman.
Churchill became the chairman of PwC Legal in 1999, when the firm merged with Dunhill Madden Butler. Churchill had been the managing partner of Dunhills' Sydney office.
PwC Legal chief executive John Wicht thanked Churchill in a statement for his efforts in taking the firm to where it is today.
