David Rowe, the Global COO of BCLP (Bryan Cave Leighton Paisner), will be joining Fladgate as COO in January 2021. The appointment of a senior executive with the depth of experience that David brings represents an important building block in Fladgate’s new three-year business strategy of accelerating its successful model of providing a personal, agile and enterprising service to some of the world’s leading and fastest growing businesses and ‘trend initiator’ brands as well as UHNWI’s and their advisors.
Prior to joining BCLP in 2013, David held a series of senior roles at PwC most recently as Finance Director of PwC’s Global Network.
Commenting of this move David said: “I have enjoyed my time at BCLP, it is a business that has grown fast and launched some market leading innovations. My decision to leave and join Fladgate is prompted by the fact that it has a refreshingly different vision, focused on building a highly personal, agile and enterprising service and a set of capabilities and products that will allow it to work on highly complex and fast moving work. The opportunity to help drive this vision, grow the business and develop a highly differentiated market position, at a time when market changes in 2020 and beyond make this vision even more relevant, represents a fantastic opportunity.”
Richard Reuben, Senior Partner at Fladgate, said: “We could not be more delighted that David has agreed to join Fladgate and at such a key moment for us. He brings a blend of: incisive business management; knowledge of the changes accelerating the fast changing professional services market; and experience in supporting new innovations in the legal sector that will complement Fladgate’s next phase of development.”
