London managing partner David Mellor succeeds Andrew Pianca at CCW

CROWE CLARK WHITEHILL has appointed its London managing partner David Mellor to head up the firm.

Mellor, (pictured) who joined the Top 20 firm in 2006, specialises in tax, with a particular focus on large international businesses.

He joined the firm from PKF where he was tax partner for three years. Before that he worked at KPMG for six years starting out as senior manager working his way up to tax partner at the Big Four firm. He started out his career as a trainee in Ernst & Young’s London office.

He succeeds Andrew Pianca, who stands down after nearly a decade as managing partner. Pianca, will now become chairman of the firm, a role he previously held for two years starting in 2001.

Mellor said: “I would like to thank Andrew Pianca for his inspired leadership in recent years. Unlike some of our competitors we have planned for succession in our firm over several years and we look forward to continuing success whilst remaining committed to our cultural values.”

“Andrew said in an interview a while ago that he wanted his legacy to be to leave an energetic group of younger partners keen to continue developing the firm, and in this I think he has succeeded.”
