Lovells has elected banking partner Andrew Gamble as the firm’s new London head.

He takes over from Ruth Grant for a three-year term as office managing partner with immediate effect, with Grant set to take up the role of global people development partner.

Previously the London head was responsible for people development as well as the day-to-day running of the office.

The changes proposed by firmwide managing partner David Harris divide the responsibilities, with Grant managing people development while Gamble looks after financial performance management, cross-selling and client development in the firm’s headquarters.

Harris said: “The new international role of people development partner is an important new position. People development initiatives are central to ensuring we maximise the potential of all our people. Ruth’s appointment is a natural progression following the significant amount of work she has done in this area on the international executive.”

Patrick Sherrington and Andreas von Falck have been re-elected as heads of the firm’s dispute resolution and commerce and real estate practices respectively.

In addition, the firm is scrapping its international operations committee in favour of a new international management group.
