Clifford Chance revamps management committees" />Clifford Chance has handed Amsterdam managing partner Jan ter Haar (pictured) a place on its management committee with his two-year term due to begin on 1 January.
Ter Harr will take responsibility for Western Europe, taking over the role from Spain managing partner Ignacio Ojanguren.
The latter has held the Western Europe position since it was created in July 2007, having previously been responsible for Europe excluding Germany. Last year the firm decided to split the management of the European practice three ways with Ojanguren taking responsibility for Western Europe, Michael Cuthbert taking on Central and Eastern Europe and Hans-Josef Schneider representing Germany on the committee (17 July).
The firm has also elected a number of partners to its partnership council with London-based Sarah Squires set to represent London and the Middle East, Rupert Li in Beijing representing Asia, Jorn Stobbe and Bernd Meyer-Witting in Frankfurt representing continental Europe and Wendy Wysong in Washington DC and Larry Medvinsky in New York representing the Americas.
The news comes after Clifford Chance elected litigation partner David DiBari as head of its Washington DC office following the defection of incumbent Leiv Blad (16 December).
