PUBLISHED December 23, 2011

The Legal Services Commission (LSC) has recruited its new chief executive from the UK Border Agency.

Matthew Coats, currently interim head of border force, will take up his new position on 27 February. The role will then change to chief executive of the Legal Aid Agency, within the Ministry of Justice, when the commission is abolished in April 2013.

Coats will lead the LSC during a period of considerable change as it implements the government?s legal aid cuts and moves to an executive agency.
