    Will joins from Addleshaw Goddard where he was a partner and head of corporate governance. Focusing on governance, corporate compliance and listed company issues, he advises listed, AIM quoted and larger private companies. Will has also acted as company secretary of a FTSE-listed telecommunications company and is a member of the Financial Reporting Council Reporting Lab's Steering Group. Will trained and practised at Ashurst before joining Addleshaws in 2002. 

    Karen Davies, UK head of corporate, commented:

    "We are delighted that Will is joining us. He is a highly respected practitioner and his dedicated corporate governance knowledge will be of great value to the team. His expertise has strong synergies with key areas of focus including disputes, ESG, financial regulatory as well as our dedicated risk advisory practice."

    Jason Radford, global head of corporate, said:

    "Corporate governance is of critical importance to our listed and larger private company clients, and Will's arrival will significantly enhance our client offering. He will make a great addition to our global corporate team, which has seen exceptional growth throughout 2020, advising on some great mandates and appointing a number of new partners across the division." 

    Will Chalk added:

    "I am thrilled to be returning to Ashurst, deploying my corporate governance experience at the firm. The principles of good governance are universal and aspects of the UK system are world-leading - other jurisdictions are keen to learn from the implementation of various reforms and Ashurst is the perfect platform from which to operate. I look forward to building on the governance and compliance offering and working closely across global practice areas and in particular with the risk advisory consultancy team based in Australia."
