Linklaters announces that US partner Scott Bowie will become Global Practice Head of the firm’s Investment Management Group, effective as of 1 May 2010.

Scott, who is currently head of the New York investment management practice, succeeds Tim Shipton, who created the Investment Management Group as a stand-alone practice in 2000. In addition to supporting Scott, Tim will continue his leadership role as co-head of the firm’s Investment Managers Sector, where he will focus on the development of the firm's overall relationships with its investment manager clients.

Scott Bowie said:"What brought me to Linklaters in 2005 was the opportunity to be part of and to develop a globally integrated investment management practice. I look forward to working with Tim and our entire global investment management team to build on the success that Tim has helped us to achieve."

Tim Shipton said:"I am absolutely delighted that Scott is taking over as Global Practice Head. We are in good hands and I look forward to supporting Scott in his new role. I have enjoyed immensely building the global practice over the last ten years and fostering the integration of our national practices in executing fund mandates. It has been a very successful period for the group and I have no doubt that this success will continue under the stewardship of Scott. I will now devote my energies to the client side of our business for the benefit of the Investment Management Group and the firm as a whole."
