Fieldfisher has re-elected Michael Chissick as its managing partner for a second term after he stood unopposed.

Chissick’s new term will start at the start of May next year and will last for three years. 

The re-election comes ahead of a separate election process for the senior partner role, which is currently held by Matthew Lohn. 

Since Chissick took over in 2013, the firm has had a rebrand, an office move to Swan Lane, as well as a merger with Manchester firm Heatons. 

Fieldfisher also recently revealed its half-year global revenues had grown 8 per cent to £58.4m for the first six months of the 2015/16 financial year. This followed a 9 per cent increase in turnover for the 2014/15 financial year, in which Fieldfisher’s top of equity broke the £1m barrier for the first time. 

This year saw the appointment of Fieldfisher’s first diversity and inclusion manager, as the firm made plans to increase the number of women in leadership positions.
