Travers Smith has re-elected senior partner Kathleen Russ for a second term, with effect from 1 July 2023.
Russ, a partner in the firm’s tax department, originally took over the role from Chris Hale, after an election in November 2018.
Commenting on her re-appointment, Russ said: “It is a great privilege to be Travers Smith’s senior partner and I am delighted to be re-elected for a second term. The last few years have thrown up a number of challenges no one could have anticipated, and as we move beyond the pandemic, but into increasingly uncertain economic times, it is more important than ever that we focus on investing in our future.
She added: “I have a deep-seated belief in the power of the team, the power of effective collaboration and in the power of harnessing and nurturing talent and I believe we do all these things exceptionally well at Travers Smith – this is our culture and this is what makes the firm truly great, and a wonderful place to work.”
