Accountancy firm KPMG has appointed Peter Workman as a partner to its Midlands legal services hub.
Workman joins from PwC, where he led its Midlands corporate legal practice and flexible lawyer offering. In his new role, Workman will lead a team of nine lawyers specialising in domestic and cross-border group reorganisations and business structuring as well as M&A and transactions.
Karl Edge, Midlands regional chairman at KPMG UK, said: “Bringing Peter on board to head up the Midlands legal services hub marks an important milestone in the development of our legal services offering, both locally across the region and nationally.
“Peter’s previous big four legal experience means he is part of a growing breed of lawyer that is increasingly in demand. He is ideally placed to support our clients on the challenges and disruption they face. His breadth of knowledge and broader business perspective, combined with high quality legal expertise and the ability to operate effectively within a multidisciplinary professional services environment, will significantly enhance what we can offer to our clients.”
Workman added: “I’m excited to be a part of KPMG legal’s rapidly expanding business structuring and transactions division. Our clients and their legal teams are coming under increasing pressure to achieve more with less in today’s complex business environment. KPMG is ideally placed to deliver solutions that help in-house teams achieve that. I look forward to working with the Midlands legal services hub, the wider KPMG network and our clients.”
