Eversheds consults on new management structure

Lee Ranson clear favourite to take chief executive role

Eversheds has begun talks to forge a new leadership team as the firm strives to avoid a divisive contest after current chief executive Bryan Hughes steps down next May. Current managing partner Lee Ranson is expected to take Hughes’ role in a management structure with two other partners.

Legal Business understands that current international managing partner Ian Gray’s post will change or a new role may be created, while global company commercial head Keith Froud is likely to be appointed as the new managing partner by Ranson.
