20th April 2023, 2:23 pm
- Director hire sees continued growth for Deloitte Legal in the North West
Deloitte Legal has today announced the appointment of Andy Casey as a partner in its Legal Entity Management (LEM) team.
With 18 years’ experience working in professional services and industry, Andy joins Deloitte Legal from Law Debenture where he was Head of Corporate Secretarial Services, a role he previously held at Konexo and Eversheds Sutherland. Prior to this, Andy worked at PwC.
In addition to Andy’s appointment, Deloitte Legal has also appointed Natalie Crook as a director in the LEM team. Based in the firm’s Manchester office, Natalie brings a range of private practice and in-house legal experience in both the private and public sector, including Travel Counsellors, Co-operative Group, Transport for Greater Manchester and Cheshire West and Chester Council. In her new role, Natalie will drive Deloitte Legal’s LEM growth ambitions in the North West. Her appointment follows the recent announcement of four partner hires to establish Deloitte Legal’s real estate legal business.
The firm’s Legal Entity Management team recently launched a new technology platform, Voyager by Deloitte Legal, providing clients with a suite of integrated solutions which work together to manage the entire lifecycle of an organisation’s legal entities. This includes compliance, transactions, knowledge management, regulatory developments and data insights and analytics.
Daniel Connell, partner and head of Legal Entity Management at Deloitte, commented: “Corporate structures are becoming increasingly complex, and regulatory pressures and compliance obligations vary by jurisdiction. Against this backdrop, and in an environment of increased reputational risk, client demand for global legal entity management services has never been higher.
“We are responding to that directly through our continued technological investments and the appointments we announced today. Andy has a proven track record of leading managed service and governance advisory businesses in legal entity management, helping clients understand the ever-changing regulatory landscape and delivering sustainable long-term growth.
“The addition of Natalie in Manchester is further testament to Deloitte Legal’s growing footprint across the UK’s regions, with 40 legal practitioners now in the North West alone.”
Andy Casey, partner, Deloitte Legal, added: “In today’s fast-changing world, business leaders are increasingly looking for tech-enabled LEM solutions to automate processes and manage the risks faced by clients with a global footprint and complex legal entity structures.
“I’m looking forward to building on Deloitte Legal’s strong reputation in the market by using the firm’s technology expertise and knowledge to help our clients gain competitive advantage through adopting smarter legal entity management.”
Andy’s appointment is the eighth partner hire for Deloitte Legal in FY23, following the recent appointments of Isabel Parker, Julia Gorham and Clare Jenkinson, as well as four partners – Vaqas Farooq, Wayne Nash, Lisa On-Iam and Dan Hargreaves – brought in to create Deloitte Legal’s new real estate offering.
