O’Neill will be replaced by former executive partner Andrew Giaccia today following an uncontested election that was held last week. O’Neill will continue to practise at the firm and will “concentrate his efforts on continuing the strategic expansion and development of the firm’s international offices,” according to a statement released by the firm.

“It’s been a privilege to serve as Chadbourne’s managing partner for 13 years and I’m looking forward to continuing to play a significant role in expanding our presence in emerging markets and elsewhere in the world,” said O’Neill.

“Andy Giaccia, my partner, friend and successor, started at Chadbourne 25 years ago. He knows our culture and our business and has participated in senior management for many years.”

Giaccia added: “I look forward to serving as a member of our management committee. Together we’ll oversee the firm’s ongoing growth as we expand our already sophisticated offerings and bolster our practices in a number of key industries and geographic regions.”

Giaccia, who has been managing partner of the firm’s Washington DC office for the last 10 years, has relocated to New York to take up the managing partner role.
