Senior partner Will Lawes – whose term also comes to an end next year – named German corporate partner Rick van Aerssen as the new corporate chief, David Scott as litigation head Chris Pugh’s replacement and Caroline Stroud in charge of employment.
However Pugh has also been active in the US, having built up the team from a standing start six years ago to 16 partners today and recently launching a new international project management team.
No winding down to Christmas for these new leaders then.
