UK's Brown Shipley Names Group Legal Head

The change comes just over a month after the UK private bank's Luxembourg-based parent was renamed from its old KBL moniker.

Quintet Private Bank, the group formerly known as KBL, and the parent of UK-based Brown Shipley, announced last week that Rachel Macfarlane had been elevated to group head of legal. She will report to Maria Leistner, group chief legal officer.

MacFarlane, who has been serving as general counsel at Brown Shipley, will continue in that role and remain based in the UK, whilst spending significant time in the offices across Quintet’s European network. 

She joined Brown Shipley in 2018 with responsibility for legal, corporate secretarial and corporate governance work. Earlier, she served as legal manager (Litigation) at Santander UK and before that as a solicitor at Cobbetts LLP, specialising in banking law.

Quintet operates under the following brand names: Brown Shipley (UK); InsingerGilissen (Netherlands); Merck Finck (Germany); Puilaetco (Belgium); Puilaetco (Luxembourg); Quintet España (Spain) and Quintet Luxembourg (Luxembourg).
