As it looks to further its global expansion, professional services and technology firm Davies Group has swooped for a new lead on all legal matters.
The company has appointed Jeff Chang (pictured) in a newly created role as general counsel. The partner at Osborne Clarke LLP has made a name for himself as a specialist in M&A transactional services and is now set to join Davies on July 01 reporting to Tony Debiase, the group chief financial officer.
“I am delighted to be joining the Davies family and having worked with them on a number of interesting projects over the last few years, it seemed a natural fit and an exciting opportunity to pursue,” said Chang. “I very much look forward to working alongside and supporting the executive leadership team during and beyond this next phase of growth.”
The move comes shortly after Davies announced the appointment of James Heath as group chief risk officer and now the firm is looking to further its global ambitions.
“We have worked closely with Jeff over many years and multiple transactions,” said group CEO Dan Saulter. “Having the chance to bring him in to Davies for this next phase of our growth was an opportunity I did not want to miss. We have ambitious global goals over the next few years and having Jeff’s expertise in-house will be invaluable as we execute our plan.”
