Suki takes over from partner Roger Woolley who has been chair of Lester Aldridge for the past 10 years.
Suki said: “I would like to thank Roger for his involvement in developing the firm’s business strategy, and representing the interests of both our clients and colleagues. Having spent my whole career at Lester Aldridge, it is a great privilege to now be appointed as chair of LA and I look forward to continuing Roger’s work and seeing the firm go from strength to strength.”
Managing partner Matthew Barrow commented: “I am delighted to congratulate Suki on his new role. I have had the pleasure of working with Suki throughout my career and know he will be an invaluable addition to our Executive Board.”
