International law firm Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer has announced that Edward Braham has been elected as its new senior partner. He will be part of a new global leadership team that will include Chris Pugh, Stephan Eilers and Michael Lacovara.
The firm’s senior management responsibilities will be shared among the team with Chris Pugh and Stephan Eilers becoming joint managing partners and Michael Lacovara taking on the role of executive partner. All will continue to work with the firm’s clients and Stephan and Michael will spend at least as much time as they do now on client work.
The team will assume their new roles from January 2016 when current senior partner Will Lawes steps down from his post and David Aitman steps down as managing partner.
Edward Braham said: ‘It is a privilege to be elected senior partner and I look forward to working with Chris, Michael and Stephan. Our clients are increasingly turning to the firm for high value advice wherever they need it, especially when the international angle matters. We look forward to continuing to develop the firm in a way that best serves our clients.’
‘I’d like to thank Will, David and Stephan for their outstanding leadership of the firm and for giving us an excellent foundation to build on. I look forward to working closely with them over the coming months to ensure a smooth transition at the end of the year.’
