The Lawyer Global Litigation Top 50 report is the only ranking of international law firms by litigation and arbitration revenue and is essential reading for anyone seeking to benchmark their litigation and dispute resolution practices...
This year, The Lawyer’s annual ranking of the largest UK law firms by turnover is available as an interactive, digital benchmarking tool. For the first time this will allow you to manipulate each data set against the metrics of your choice.
The magic circle firm’s employment, pensions and benefits (EPB) group has hired the founder and managing director of Ius Laboris, the international network of firms that specialise in employment law.
Jean-François Gerard joins Freshfields’ Brussels office as the firm’s first international practice development lawyer. He will mainly focus on business development rather than fee-earning.
The role is unique to the EPB group and there are no plans to extend it to the rest of the firm.
Meanwhile, Ius Laboris, which comprises 36 firms across 34 jurisdictions, is expected to announce a new managing director next week after its membership congress.
Freshfields’ Brussels office now has over 70 lawyers, but did miss out during the firm’s recent round of partner promotions. By comparison the EPB practice group scored one new partner in Paris with Gwen Senlanne.
