Mayer Brown to revamp management" />Mayer Brown chairman James Holzhauer (pictured) has announced that he is stepping down from the management position after leading the US firm for two years.
Holzhauer will officially give up the role in January 2010, although he will step down earlier if a successor is named before that time.
Holzhauer took up the leadership role in 2007, when he replaced Tyrone Fahner. The firm elected two vice chairmen at the same time, with London managing partner Paul Maher and Washington DC head Ken Geller filling the positions.
During Holzhauer's tenure as chairman of Mayer Brown the firm has made significant developments in its international strategy. In 2007 The Lawyer reported that Mayer Brown had merged with Hong Kong firm Johnson Stokes & Masters ( 21 December 2007).
Holzhauer said: "I've been honoured to serve as chairman of Mayer Brown through a time of transformational change.
"While the chairman's role has often been challenging it also has been rewarding beyond my expectations. I'm proud to have played my part in making Mayer Brown what it is today and helping to build a foundation for what it will become tomorrow."
