Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer is set to advise Tesco on the formal criminal investigation by the Serious Fraud Office (SFO) after leading the investigation into the retailer’s profit warning alongside accountancy giant Deloitte.
As fellow Magic Circle firm Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer targets the US market, Clifford Chance's US leadership is seeking to upscale its offering in the Americas, and are actively looking to recruit fresh talent across all levels, from associate to partner. But, such growth, explains Americas managing partner Evan Cohen and Washington DC managing partner David DiBari, will be achieved without breaking away from the firm's traditional remuneration system.
Norton Rose Fulbright has re-elected Peter Martyr as global chief executive for a further three years, an appointment that will constitute the leader’s fifth term in the top role. The firm has, however, appointed Martin Scott, the firm’s global corporate head, M&A securities, to succeed Martyr as managing partner of Norton Rose Fulbright LLP.
