Mahon will be in charge of overseeing strategic operations for the US LLP and takes over from Howard Nicols, who recently retired from the firm.

London-based corporate partner David Wack and Paris-based corporate partner Charles Fabry have taken seats on the global board. They replace Brussels head Brian Hartnett and Madrid head Rafael Alonso, whose terms have come to an end.

Mahon splits his time between the firm’s offices in New York and Ohio and focuses his practice on mergers and acquisitions, private equity and hedge fund investing, and corporate finance. He serves on the firm’s 14-member global board and has previously been a member of the firm’s management committee.

Fabry focuses his practice on private equity and venture capital, while Wack splits his time between London and Moscow and focuses on cross-border transactions, particularly in relation to Russia and other countries of the former Soviet Union.

Commenting on the appointments, Squire Sanders chair and CEO James Maiwurm said: “Squire Sanders, like other global legal practices, operates in a rapidly changing business environment.

“One of Squire Sanders’ strengths is that we can count on lawyers like Steve, David and Charles, who are willing and more than able to take on demanding leadership roles to help the firm achieve its goals.”
