City of London law firm, Druces LLP, is delighted to announce the arrival of Julian Washington, an experienced business development specialist with a formidable background in the legal sector, as its new Head of Business Development.
Julian spent almost twenty years as a lawyer in private practice with major London firms before moving into a second career in business development in the financial services industry. At Royal Bank of Canada he rose to become Head of Business Development in London and later led the bank’s thought leadership offering in the UK, acting as an ambassador for RBC in the private wealth market.
Commenting on Julian’s arrival, Roy Campbell, Senior Partner at Druces, said: “Julian’s appointment is an important move for Druces and is set in the context of our plans for growth. The combination of Julian’s inside knowledge of the legal market and his wider business development acumen positions us well for the next phase of our development. It is very good to welcome Julian to the firm.”
Julian Washington further comments: “This move to Druces feels like the perfect next step for me. I am bringing my career full circle from those early days in legal practice, via my evolution into senior business development roles in the banking world and now bringing that skill-set back into the law. It is exciting to be embarking on this new chapter with Druces at a time of great opportunity and growth for the firm.”
