Nigel Haddon has stepped down as chief executive of SAS Daniels after almost nine years at the helm.

The northwest UK law firm says it has “no plans to appoint a new chief executive” and that “the remaining partners and senior staff will continue to lead the firm”.

Haddon steered the firm through two years of double-digit growth and it achieved record-breaking growth in 2012/13. Turnover grew by nine per cent in the financial year ending April 2013, with a total fee value of £6.4m (up from £5.9m in the previous year).

“After almost nine years as managing partner/CEO of Daniels and, on merger, SAS Daniels, I have decided to move on to take up fresh challenges,” said Haddon.

“I am very proud of the firm I leave behind, which has accomplished so much in recent years in the teeth of the worst economic climate of our lifetimes. 

“I plan to take a few weeks’ break to re-charge my batteries and to consider the opportunities open to me in the legal services sector. The changes taking place in that sector are endlessly fascinating, as well as challenging, to those affected by them. I'm looking forward to taking on some of those challenges, no doubt different ones to those faced in my last role, in the not too distant future!”

SAS Daniels has offices in Stockport, Chester, Macclesfield and Congleton.
