Simon Boss to take on CEO role at Shoosmiths
Shoosmiths has announced that Simon Boss will take over as CEO of the firm as of January 2019. He will replace Claire Rowe, who is leaving the role for personal reasons.
Boss currently serves as head of the firm’s real estate practice, and has been a partner with the firm for 14 years. He said he looks forward to leading the firm in its next phase, following a period of growth under Rowe’s leadership.
During Rowe’s tenure as CEO, Shoosmiths’ net profits grew to £35.8m, while profit per equity partner reached a high of £434,000 last year.
