Russell-Cooke have appointed Dominic Fairclough as new Managing Partner, taking over from Nigel Coates who now moves in to the role of Deputy Senior Partner. Both positions are effective from 1 February 2012.

Dominic is a partner in the Personal Injury and Clinical Negligence team, and will hold the position for the next three years.

The role will see him working closely with the firms' central resources functions and all legal teams; planning, developing policies, overseeing systems, and appraising results. Most importantly he will ensure that Russell-Cooke continues to offer good value and a high level of service for clients.

It is an exciting challenge for Dominic, who looks forward to contributing to the growth and development of the firm.
