Mayhew - whose City links include Chair of the Policy And Resources Committee of the Corporation of London - will advise on relations between the public and private sector.
A former Chairman of the Corporation of London's Education Committee, Mayhew will also advise the firm on recruitment, education and training initiatives - including its relationship with UK universities - and work with its Pro Bono committee.
An associate solicitor with Wilde Sapte since 1994, Mayhew will also do fee-earning work in Clifford Chance's employment department when she takes up her new post on 17 January 1999.- two weeks after the Clifford Chance/Roger & Wells merger goes through.
Clark says: "We are delighted that such a high-profile and influential City figure is joining Clifford Chance . A distinctive, high quality legal service demands the capability to focus on the strategic interaction of recruitment and training and on the interfaces between the public and private sector."
