Robert will take up office on 16 October and replaces outgoing CEO, Chris West, who is retiring from the firm.

Robert has extensive business leadership and legal sector experience, most recently as CEO of London based Pemberton Greenish LLP, specialists in private client, property and corporate law.

Gillespie Macandrew Chairperson Fiona Morton said,

“I am delighted to announce Robert’s appointment, particularly as he has already demonstrated an approach to the CEO role that we feel is strongly aligned with our values as a firm. We seek to always be straightforward, open and transparent in our relationships, continually working hard to be an attractive place for talented and enthusiastic people to work in strong teams delivering great advice to our clients.

“I am grateful to Chris who has delivered the strong growth the firm has achieved over the past few years and established a robust financial position to move forward from. He has also recently led the rebrand launch further providing the platform for Robert to drive the next phase of our plan to develop and grow our business in response to market opportunities.”

Robert Graham-Campbell said

“I am excited to be joining Gillespie Macandrew at a time of fast-paced change in the legal services market. The importance of strong client relationships, based on the highest levels of quality and service, has never been greater. The firm’s focus on this is central to its medium term strategy and places it in a strong position in a competitive market. I look forward to working with the Chair, partners and staff to lead the firm through the next stages of its development.”
