Clifford Chance appoints special advisor

Mayhew – whose City links include Chair of the Policy And Resources Committee of the Corporation of London – will advise on relations between the public and private sector.

A former Chairman of the Corporation of London's Education Committee, Mayhew will also advise the firm on recruitment, education and training initiatives – including its relationship with UK universities – and work with its Pro Bono committee.

An associate solicitor with Wilde Sapte since 1994, Mayhew will also do fee-earning work in Clifford Chance's employment department when she takes up her new post on 17 January 1999.- two weeks after the Clifford Chance/Roger & Wells merger goes through.

Clark says: “We are delighted that such a high-profile and influential City figure is joining Clifford Chance . A distinctive, high quality legal service demands the capability to focus on the strategic interaction of recruitment and training and on the interfaces between the public and private sector.”
