Review prompts SFO to create chief counsel role
The Serious Fraud Office (SFO) is poised for a restructuring that will create a chief counsel role in the organisation's legal team. The decision follows a review of the SFO by former senior New York City prosecutor Jessica De Grazia, which argued that introducing the position would allow the body to increase its legal capability and quality. The SFO will scrap the post of deputy director as part of the overhaul. Director Richard Alderman is leading the search for a suitable chief counsel.
