Wadia returns at law firm.

Ex-Andersen chief to be chief operating officer at Linklaters & Alliance

Former Arthur Andersen chief Jim Wadia, who last year quit amid the firm’s painful split from its consulting arm, is set to re-emerge at law firm Linklaters & Alliance, where he will be chief operating officer.

Wadia resigned as worldwide managing partner at the accounting giant following the International Chamber of Commerce’s arbitration on the Andersen divorce. He had been in the role for three years.

The appointment marks the first time a non-lawyer has taken a senior position at the legal giant, though Wadia did train as a barrister before joining Arthur Andersen as a tax partner.

Wadia is expected to assist the firm in its move towards a global support structure. He will start work next week at the firm’s Moorgate office in London.
