Ashurst has injected new blood into its management committee, with litigation partner Ben Tidswell and corporate partner Reinhard Eyring taking up places on the eight-person board.
The committee is responsible for setting the top 10 firm's strategy and is headed by senior partner Geoffrey Green.
The new members replace Milan office head Daniele Raynaud and leveraged finance partner Mark Vickers, who has become the firm's first European head of finance after stepping down from the board.
The committee has two places for those based outside the London office. Eyring, who has been with Ashurst for the bulk of the time it has had a German presence, is taking the international seat vacated by Raynaud, Green told The Lawyer.
As well as Green, Tidswell and Eyring, the committee comprises firm managing partner Simon Bromwich, finance director Nigel Morland, litigation partner Ed Sparrow, Paris-based finance partner Laurent Mabilat, energy, transport and infrastructure (ETI) partner Logan Mair and head of private equity Charlie Geffen.
The committee has to wind up a far-reaching lockstep review in the coming weeks, which will rebase the partnership's remuneration.
