Tim Aspinall will step down as managing partner of DMH Stallard at the end of this year.

An uncontested partnership election has resulted in Richard Pollins, head of the real estate department, being appointed as his successor from 1 January 2015.

Aspinall, who will work closely with Pollins during the transitional period, intends to take on a consultancy role at the London and Southeast England firm.

"l have enjoyed my time as managing partner building a strong successful business with a client list that many larger law firms would be proud of," he said.

"After another highly successful year, this is the right time for me to announce my retirement as managing partner. I now intend to become a consultant with the firm to give the new leadership team the space they need to take the firm forward to new successes."

Pollins trained at the firm and has been head of its real estate department for five years and a member of the management team for fourteen.

As part of the transition, Rustom Tata, previously head of the firm's employment department, becomes the firm's chair today.

With immediate effect, Tina George will take over leadership of the real estate department and Simon Elcock will head up the regional dispute resolution department.

Responsibility for business development will be more focused on partners Tim Ashdown, Jonathan Deverill and Jonathan Grant, who will coordinate efforts in relation to new business, client development and strategy.
