City of London law firm, Druces LLP, is delighted to announce the arrival of Edward Gordon-Hall, an experienced legal sector finance specialist, as its new Finance Director.
Edward has more than 20 years’ CFO/FD experience gained across a variety of UK and International professional services firms (including Kilburn & Strode (where he was Practice Director), Lewis Silkin, Olswang (prior to its 3-way merger with CMS and Nabarros) and most recently, Edwin Coe), to head up Druces’ finance team.
Edward brings board-level experience and a proven track-record in delivering innovative profitability and operational efficiency solutions. He has also worked across a number of business disciplines in his capacity as Practice Director, which involved overseeing all business support functions.
Commenting on Edward’s arrival, Roy Campbell, Senior Partner at Druces, said: “Edward’s hire is a significant move for Druces. Following 4 years of double-digit growth and our recent re-entry into The Lawyer’s ‘UK 200’, Edward’s arrival will enable us to build on the firm’s sound financial management and ultimately continuing our financial success. We are delighted that he is joining us.”
Edward Gordon-Hall further comments: “I am excited to be joining Druces at such a critical time for firms working in today’s legal sector. I am looking forward in particular to the challenge of joining such a long established firm as it continues to look forward in a rapidly changing legal landscape”.
