Dundas & Wilson has announced to partners and staff this morning its timetable for electing a new managing partner and chairman.

The news follows the surprise resignation of Donald Shaw in March, just under two years into his second three-year term as managing partner. Shaw had shared the role with Alan Campbell during his first term. Both former managing partners have since returned to client-facing roles within the Scottish firm.

Chairman David Hardie is overseeing the election process, which will choose the individuals to hold the post until 2016.

Expressions of interest are being sought for the managing partner and chairman positions from today, with Hardie collating these by 8 June. A secret ballot, after an examination of candidates’ proposals, will take place on 20 June.

The names of the new managing partner and chairman will be made public on 21 June and the successful candidates will take office from 1 August.

Hardie and the acting interim managing partners, Caryn Penley and Allan Wernham, are due to give up their roles on 31 July.

Commenting on the process, Hardie said: “This is an exciting time for a new managing partner to shape our future and to build upon our continuing success”.
