Euro-decisions for Inkester in Nabarro’s election manifesto?

It’s election time at Nabarro, as managing partner Andrew Inkester looks set to head to the polls for the first time.

The July elections will be the first time the firm has voted on a chief following 15 years of board appointments.

It isn’t the only change to the process with senior and managing partner now taking up four-year terms instead of five and three-year ones.

Inkester looks set to be the key name in the frame and, if uncontested election predictions come good, his next term will prove interesting for Nabarro’s foreign best friends.

In fact Inkester might want to consult The Lawyer’s European 100 for advice following the exit of its French best friend August & Debouzy from its European alliance earlier this year.

New head of international Patricia Godfrey should certainly have a copy on her bedside. She has been tasked with finding a new firm to fit in the network as well as spearheading the firm’s move into Dubai following its surprise launch in Singapore.

All change at Nabarro then? Or just new friends on the Continent for Inkester and his clan? The wait is surely over, now that the firm has this week’s issue of The Lawyer to decide on potential partners.
