Baker & McKenzie has paid tribute to its former London managing partner Russell Lewin, who died last week aged 51.
Lewin was head of the firm’s City office between 1998 and 2003, and went on to become a European member of the global executive committee.
A statement released by Bakers said: “As a natural born leader, Russell commanded genuine respect from everyone he encountered and was extremely generous with his time in supporting colleagues with the development of their careers.”
Lewin, who was an IP/IT partner at Bakers at the time of his death, was also a trustee of the Social Mobility Foundation.
