Manches loses its COO after just 18 months

The Chief Operating Officer at Manches is making an early exit from the firm, after just 18 months in the role. Judith Petho joined Manches from CMS Cameron McKenna, and she is now off to some unspecified alternative commercial role. The leadership of Manches might be rather a tough gig, seeing that Petho’s predeccessor - former Orrick Europe managing officer Alexandrina Le Clezio - quit after just six months in the job. A spokesperson for the firm commented on the departure, saying: "Judith’s input in refocusing Manches on its core client sectors and revamping the operational side of the business into a modern corporate structure is now substantially complete".
