Client-facing pitch sees corporate star Jacobs take Linklaters senior partner role

Pitching himself as an outward-facing leader has paid off for Linklaters M&A heavyweight Charlie Jacobs (pictured), who won the firm’s senior partner election last month.

Jacobs defeated competition from corporate colleagues Jean-Pierre Blumberg and Aedamar Comiskey to be elected the new senior partner at the Magic Circle firm.

Jacobs will replace Robert Elliott when he finishes a five-year term at the end of September.
