Royal Dutch Shell Plc announces changes to legal leadership team

By John Donovan

Richard Hill has been appointed as General Counsel for Shell downstream. Richard was hitherto Shell General Counsel for Global litigation, a role being taken by Kimberly Phillips, previously Houston based Shell Associate General Counsel of global litigation for the Americas.

Richard Hill will fill the role currently occupied by Martin Bambridge who is leaving on health grounds.

Shell legal director Donny Ching says:

“I am delighted to welcome Kimberly to the Shell Legal Leadership Team, and Richard to his new role. Both will play a critical role in enabling legal to continue partnering with Shell’s businesses to deliver our strategy and navigate the opportunities and risks of the unfolding energy transition. “I am also very grateful to Martin for bringing his deep experience, insight, humour and great leadership to the legal leadership team table while Legal went through considerable change over the past few years.”

Shell also recently appointed Michael Coates as the new group chief ethics and compliance officer and general counsel of compliance.
