The first round of voting in the Clifford Chance senior partner election has closed with not one of the three candidates polling the 50 per cent of votes required to be declared victorious.
Tax partner Jonathan Elman, finance partner Malcolm Sweeting and German corporate partner Daniela Weber-Rey will all now move forward to a second round, with voting expected to start in the next few days.
