Boyes (pictured), who formerly edited the Asia Pacific guide, left Legal 500 in April 2015 to join the marketing department at Norton Rose Fulbright, but now returns to replace the departed John Read.
The annual UK directory season has cranked into gear, with firms busily preparing the first round of Chambers submissions due December 15.
Legal 500 is set to release its UK submission guidelines and a timetable for the 2016 edition week starting November 23 2015, with deadlines in early 2016.
