UK Law Firms - Knowledge Management & IT Recruitment

An interesting two months of change in the UK law firm support department leadership areas - particularly in Knowledge Management and Information Technology.

Innovator Sam Diamond of Clifford Chance fame will be leaving to join Norton Rose as the Global Knowledge Management Director, and will also have a new peer as the firm also announces a new global CIO. Sheila Doyle joins in the role, and has previously held IT roles at BP, IBM and, most recently, Royal Mail, which she left last year to work on a freelance basis. Full details

In other moves, Chris White of Ashurst fame has emerged as the new interim CIO at Kennedys, with former Kennedys CIO Ian Lawreys moving to Barlow Lyde & Gilbert. Tim Hyman (previously IT Director at Taylor Wessing) has moved to Reed Smith to become IT Director EMEA of the global firm, while upcoming appointments in the Knowledge Management field should also be expected from firms Stephenson Harwood and Osbourne Clark.

Janders Dean congratulates all the movers and shakers on their exciting new challenges.
