Elections: Taylor Wessing re-appoints senior partner

Taylor Wessing has re-appointed its senior partner Adam Marks for a second term following an uncontested election.

Marks was first appointed to the role in 2011 and succeeded private equity partner Martin Winter. Prior to his senior partner role, Marks headed the real estate department at the firm from 2003 to 2007.

Now set to serve another three-year term, Marks primary role is to look after the firm’s partners, though he also heads up its supervisory council, which signs off on the firm’s budget.

Marks said in a statement: “It has been deeply satisfying to play a part in supporting Tim and the Board in Taylor Wessing’s growth, which has been considerable since my first election in 2011, and I am delighted to be able to continue to do so in what is an exciting period for the firm.”

Current UK managing partner Tim Eyles is set to come to the end of his second term in autumn 2015, however, it is understood the firm has not yet started planning on the appointment. Eyles was voted in uncontested also, six months ahead of the end of his first term in 2012.
