Manchester based legal services firm, AWH solicitors have appointed Viv Williams as their non-executive Chairman.
Viv has been bought in to strengthen the management structure of the business as the firm looks to accelerate its growth strategy over the next 2 years.
Viv is a leading consultant to law firms specialising in strategy, structure and management and will add additional expertise to the board of AWH. Viv is currently the Consulting Director of Symphony Legal and joint owner of merger business, Ampersand.
Viv states “I was introduced to AWH through the legal team at Pinsents, and I am delighted to join the board as nonexecutive Chairman. I will assist the current management team in their ambitious acquisition plans and provide the corporate governance and strategic advice required in a challenging sector. My previous experience of Chairing a technology business will also assist with the ongoing changes affecting this sector. I am also excited about bringing new opportunities into AWH and formulate strategic acquisitions in new sectors complimentary to the business. AWH has invested heavily into incorporating artificial intelligence into their case management software and is ideally placed to take advantage of the turmoil facing the personal injury sector with significant private equity backing.
