  • Clifford Chance should choose the person best able to discharge the actual functions of Senior Partner under its Partnership Agreement for the next 4 years, whether or not that produces the best headlines for the journos on diversity or other "huge brand advantages".

  • Never mind any diversity symbolics. Who's going to be the right candidate for a firm which thinks it is global? CC will either decide it is a London-centric firm, or they'll think about where they need to be over the next 10 years. The danger is they'll become the Macfarlanes of the Magic Circle.

  • Interesting that Anonymous 10.20 sees diversity as symbolic only. The biggest challenge facing Clifford Chance is to be properly global in a world where Asia (China) will be the dominant power bloc. A bunch of insular London gents won't be ready for that world.

  • to @Popham's Ghost - if having a management team who reflect the rising economies such as China, India and Brazil is what is needed to be a successful global firm of the future, then not just CC is in trouble but all global firms. Having a German partner as senior partner at CC (whether male, female or other) really will make no difference at all. How about a partner from Hong Kong - and a Chinese one - not another Brit?
