It was all smiles in Kensington yesterday as the Legal 500 announced a series of staff promotions on its editorial team.

A number of experienced researchers were moved into the hotseats of the publisher’s main directory titles.
Lauren Hughes, who has been with Legal 500 since 2009, is the new editor of The Legal 500 United States.
She was formerly assistant editor, and before that, a senior researcher and writer.
Joining her on the senior editorial team are Hayley Eustace, the new editor of The Legal 500 United Kingdom Bar section; and Alexander Boyes, who takes charge of The Legal 500 Asia Pacific.
Legal 500 publishing director David Burgess commented:
“I am delighted to announce the promotion of Alexander Boyes, Lauren Hughes and Hayley Eustace to the role of editor for Asia Pacific, United States and the UK Bar respectively. Each of them has a wealth of experience in researching The Legal 500, but importantly, they also bring fresh ideas into the legal directory arena. Over the next twelve months, expect to see them visiting countless firms and corporate counsel in their respective jurisdictions to gather feedback on what clients want from us. I consider them to be among the very best in this business, and it is only fitting that they take the lead on this. The Legal 500’s senior editorial team is now better than it has ever been, and each of our core products is in very safe hands.”
