Six candidates have come forward to stand for the post of senior partner at Freshfields just a few days before the magic circle firm’s partnership conference in Paris this weekend.
Four UK partners are standing for election: regulatory specialist Guy Morton, and corporate partners Graham Nicholson, Barry O’Brien and Philip Richards.
The other two candidates are based on the Continent: Paris finance partner and former French managing partner Jean-Luc Michaud and current co-senior partner Konstantin Mettenheimer, who is based in Frankfurt.
The six candidates will take part in a hustings at the partnership conference on Friday evening, but no date for a vote has yet been set.
The election has been sparked by the impending retirement of current senior partner Anthony Salz.
Although Freshfields currently runs a system of joint senior partners, that structure is under review by the partnership council.
It is understood that only Michaud is running on a single senior partner manifesto.
