This article reports that the company Virgin Group Ltd. has raided the law firm Slaughter and May to fill the newly created role of group general counsel. Slaughters litigator Josh Bayliss is due to join Virgin Group next Monday. Bayliss's appointment comes weeks after the shock departure of Virgin's group legal director Helena Samaha. The appointment will enable Virgin to consolidate the leadership of the group secretariat and the IP and legal departments, the heads of which will report directly to Bayliss.
