A&O litigation leadership shake up after 10 years
Allen & Overy’s litigation chief Tim House has made the decision to step down from the role after 10 years.
Having been appointed A&O’s US senior partner and relocating to New York one year ago, House intended to maintain his litigation chief position by returning to London monthly., but he will now give up that responsibility.
Succeeding him in the role is employment partner Karen Seward, who has been with the firm since 2000, when she moved from Pinsent Masons. Seward will assume the role in May of this year.
