Squire Sanders is preparing to select new European and US managing partners as the terms of office for incumbents Peter Crossley and Stephen Mahon come to an end.
The firm’s 12-strong nomination committee is currently in the process of picking the candidates it will put forward to the global board. The board has final sign-off on the managing partner roles, with no partnership vote involved.
Crossley, who was formerly managing partner of legacy firm Hammonds, took up the role of European managing partner when the firm merged with Squire Sanders in January 2011 (8 November 2010). His three-year term of office comes to an end on 31 December this year.
US managing partner Stephen Mahon replaced Howard Nichols last year (25 January 2012) following the latter’s retirement, but will also see his term of office end in December.
The global nomination committee has until September to select its candidates.
