IBB Solicitors Announces New Managing Partner: Steven Booth Steps into Senior Partner Role

Leading West London law firm IBB Solicitors (IBB) is pleased to announce that Joanna Debiase has been appointed Managing Partner. She succeeds Steven Booth who takes up the newly created role of Senior Partner. Both appointments are effective from 1 May 2016.

Joanna Debiase became a Partner at IBB in 2009. In her current role as Operations Partner and Compliance Officer for Legal Practice (COLP) she has been instrumental in ensuring that the firm’s management and operational processes develop in-line with industry best practice.

In her role of Managing Partner, Joanna will be responsible for implementing IBB’s new business plan and strategic vision to ensure IBB maintains and builds upon its position as West London’s leading law firm.

Steven Booth steps into the role of Senior Partner and will take an increasingly external-facing role for IBB. He will continue to remain actively involved with clients and will be a crucial asset in propelling the firm's market-leading projects, especially those involving the local community.

Senior Partner Steven Booth said:

"I congratulate Joanna on her appointment. My fellow partners and I are delighted to welcome her into the role. We have a very strong management team in place and we are confident Joanna’s skill set and knowledge of the wider firm will play a key role in achieving our ambition of building a distinctive firm, ready to take advantage of the opportunities that the next decade will bring. For my part, I am very much looking forward to assuming the role of Senior Partner, which will afford me the opportunity to continue to support the firm, its management and our vision of being bolder, brighter and better.”

Joanna Debiase added:

"This is an incredibly exciting time to be taking over as Managing Partner. I look forward to working with my colleagues to build our law firm into an organisation that makes law work for all our clients; be they our multinational and national corporates, major housebuilders and developers as well as our private clients. IBB is at the beginning of a period of transformation and I hope to both consolidate and build upon the inspirational management provided by Steven during his time as founding partner. We are pleased that he will continue to share his passion for IBB."
