Cultural change specialist Jim Lawless will join top-200 UK law firm BPE Solicitors as non-executive chair at the beginning of October.

Lawless has designed and implemented programmes on creating and delivering cultural change for companies including Apple, Barclaycard, Atos, AXA and BT.

"This is an exciting path in the firm's development, one which will lead to change, challenge and progress," said BPE's senior partner, John Workman.

"Jim attended our Business People Brilliant People brand launch event last year as guest speaker. He made a huge impact on us and we've been in discussions ever since about him taking a hands on role at the firm."

Workman noted that there is "a huge amount of synergy" between Lawless' "entrepreneurial approach" and the way BPE practices law.

Lawless will be working with Workman, the partners and staff at BPE to "further bed down the law firm's brand values both internally and externally to clients and associates," the firm said.

Originally qualified as a solicitor, Lawless practiced commercial law at SJ Berwin & Co in London and worked at ICL/Fujitsu before founding 'Taming Tigers Ltd' and developing his framework for delivering outstanding results.

Lawless is a leading international keynote speaker on change and performance management and the author of Taming Tigers.
