Wednesday May 7,2014 : LADBROKES GENERAL COUNSEL LEAVES COMPANY
 
Deputy takes over the role
 
Jonathan Adelman, Ladbrokes legal counsel and company secretary has left the company.
 
He is succeeded by former deputy Annabel Bannerman who took over the role from April 2014.
 
Adelman led two comprehensive reviews of Ladbrokes' external legal panels during his tenure.  He reduced the number of external legal firms used by the UK bookmaker from "more than a hundred" to a core group of four and another eighteen firms who are used on a far less frequent basis.
 
"We had a stated and strong desire to work with firms that would be truly dedicated to Ladbrokes – those that understood and bought in to the vision and values encapsulated in our legal strategic plan," Adelman told Legal Week at the time of the review.
