– UK, London – Keystone Law Group PLC (LON: KEYS), the fast-growing, UK Top 100, challenger law firm which in November 2020 was named “Law Firm of the Year” at the prestigious Lawyer Awards, today announced the appointment of Isabel Napper to its Board as Non-Executive Director effective from 1st December 2020.
Isabel is currently Non- Executive Director and Chair of the Remuneration Committee of both SDI Group Plc and Tristel PLC. Until 2015, Isabel was a successful lawyer specialising in intellectual property and commercial law.
Following the recent successful IPO of Kooth PLC, a business of which Peter Whiting is Non-Executive Chairman, Peter now feels that the level of his commitments across the various boards on which he sits means that it is now the right time to step down as Non-Executive Director at Keystone. Both he and the Board have agreed that this should take place following the announcement of the Group’s 2021 results and that Peter will continue in his role as Chair of the Audit Committee until that time. Following Peter’s departure, Simon Philips, Non-Executive Director, will Chair the Audit Committee and Isabel will Chair the Remuneration Committee.
“We are delighted to welcome Isabel to the Board and look forward to working with her. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Peter for his invaluable contribution to the Group since our IPO and I wish him well for the future.” said CEO, James Knight.
