Taylor Wessing shakes up leadership
Taylor Wessing has appointed real estate chief Keith Barnett to the management board, and installed him as the leader of one of the firm's three overarching business groups, which includes real estate, finance, insolvency, construction, environment and planning.
The two leadership roles were formerly held by finance head Rodney Dukes, who will continue to lead the firm’s finance practice.
Keith Barnett will give up his role as head of real estate, and will be replaced by partner Mark Bennett from 1 January.
Meanwhile, construction partner Laurence Cobb will take over leadership of the firm's UK construction practice, replacing Helen Garthwaite, who will stay on as a partner and head of the firm's sustainability industry group.
