The candidates for the position of senior partner at Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer were reduced to five today (26 October) when French partner Jean-Luc Michaud withdrew from the race.
Michaud was the sole partner standing on a single senior partner ticket. He withdrew after a partnership vote commited to continuing with its dual senior partner structure.
The vote and Michaud’s withdrawal effectively confirms that current German senior partner Konstantin Mettenheimer will continue in the position and leaves the remainder of the race to be decided between the four UK candidates; Guy Morton, Philip Richards, Barry O’Brien and Graham Nicholson.
No date is believed to have been set for the senior partner vote though it is expected in November.
