Taylor Wessing senior partner handed second term

Taylor Wessing has re-elected Martin Winter as senior partner to serve another three-year term.

Private equity specialist Winter has been a partner at Taylor Wessing since 2001 and took over the senior partner post from Richard Marsh in 2005.

Winter said: “With the move of our London office to a great new building at New Street Square only a few weeks away, this is an exciting time for everyone at the firm. I look forward to seeing further growth over the course of the next three years.”

Winter joined the firm in 2001 from Pinsent Curtis Biddle, the legacy firm of Pinsent Masons, where he was senior partner. Before joining Biddle as a partner in 1985 he was an associate at Norton Rose.

Winter is a keen sportsman. He has run 11 marathons and has been the UK’s champion in slalom water-skiing twice, in 2000 and 2007.
