Eversheds’ new temporary legal job

8th January 2015

As it is announced that Eversheds’ GC Angela Robertson leaves for a director of risk and GC position at international law firm Taylor Wessing, Eversheds has announced that they will not recruit for a replacement GC. 

Robertson takes on the new role in which she will manage the firm’s regulatory and compliance affairs in addition to advising the board on risk management. In her place, compliance director Chris Belcher is taking the temporary legal job vacancy of interim director until a successor is found. Robertson is set to take on the position when Taylor Wessing’s current GC Neil White retires from the post later this April.

Robertson’s experience includes her position at Eversheds, which she held since 2011, as well as an 11-year period at Clifford Chance where she started as a solicitor before her post as director of conflicts, according to this article. In addition to the Robertson hire, Taylor Wessing has also brought in Kevin Harris as its new IT director who comes from a technology director position at Deloitte UK.
