UBS has appointed a trio of in-house staff to fill Peter Kurer’s general counsel role while the bank looks for a replacement for Kurer, who was named chairman last month.

Global head of compliance Neil Stocks, group legal head and general counsel for the corporate centre Bernard Schmid and David Aufhauser, global general counsel for investment banking and general counsel of UBS Americas, will act as co-general counsels until the bank chooses a replacement.
