Neville Eisenberg has been elected unopposed for his fourth term as managing partner of Berwin Leighton Paisner (BLP).
He was appointed following a partner vote on Thursday last week (5 March) and will serve for another three years.
Following the announcement Eisenberg, who has been managing partner since 1999, said the firm had "excellent prospects" in spite of challenging market conditions.
Eisenberg had been expected to sail through the election process, with no other partners being put forward as alternative candidates.
BLP chairman Peter Robinson said: "Neville's tenure has transformed BLP and given the firm the stability and direction to provide our clients and staff with outstanding results."
BLP recently expanded into the Russian market, taking on 70 lawyers from Russian firm Pepeliaev Goltsblat & Partners (PGP) in Moscow (19 January).
The firm saw profits fall in its financial results for 2007-08, despite revenue rising 10 per cent to £186m. Average profit per equity partner (PEP) dropped six per cent from £660,000 to £620,000 (18 June 2008).
