"Those turbulent times have brought out the very best in our management team, our partners and our people, and I feel truly privileged to have the opportunity to work alongside Peter in leading them through the next chapter in Shoosmiths' story. "The rate of change in the legal profession has never been greater and that trend is only going to continue, bringing with it many opportunities. So I am really looking forward to the journey ahead." Mr Boss added: "I have absolute confidence that David, with his spirit, energy and expertise, will excel in the role of chief executive and build upon the successes we continue to enjoy. "Although I have decided to step back from the role, I intend to continue my focus on social mobility and other aspects of the environmental, social and corporate governance agenda. "I would like to thank the firm and everyone I have worked with closely with over the last three years. I will remain as active as ever until May comes."
