Charles Allen-Jones will be senior partner of the merged firm, while Michael Oppenhoff will be vice-chairman. Tony Angel will take on the role of managing partner of the merged firm and Markus Hartung that of managing partner in Germany. Terence Kyle, chief executive of Linklaters & Alliance, says, “Linklaters & Alliance has developed considerably since it was formed [in 1998]. … This is another step in the integration.” In Germany the firm will be known as Linklaters Oppenhoff & Radler. It retains the name Linklaters elsewhere. The Magic Circle firm also plans to merge with alliance partners De Brauw Blackstone Westbroek (Holland), De Bandt van Hecke Lagae & Loesch (Belgium), Lagerlof & Leman (Sweden) and Gianni Origoni & Partners (Italy) on January, 1 2002.

By Alexis Roitman TWO NEW RECRUITS FOR 4 PAPAER BUIDLINGS Lionel Swift QC’s leading family set, 4 Paper Buildings, continues its expansion by hiring two new tenants. Senior family law specialist Rozanna Malcolm joins from rival set Gray’s Inn Chambers. Family specialist Darren Maw, a pupil at 4 Paper for 12 months, has been appointed a tenant. Kay May, chambers manager at 4 Paper Buildings, says, “There have been some suggestions that Rozanna was not happy at Gray’s Inn Chambers. She considers it a very positive move, and was very keen on joining us.” The move follows from 4 Paper’s recent hiring of two negligence experts from 1 Paper Buildings, Dr Michael Powers QC and Dr Evelyn Pollock. Both practiced medicine before being called to the Bar. By Brendan Malkin EVERSHEDS MAKES RESTRUCTURE A REALITY Eversheds has announced its move to a single financial structure with a new streamlined management. The move ends years of disagreement between partners by finally unifying the pay and conditions of all its 13 U.K. offices. The firm’s management board met at a secret location over the weekend to officially sign the documentation. The new structure comes into effect immediately. Evershed’s chairman, Keith James, claims the move will improve the firm’s ability to develop and compete for business across Europe. “It will give us much greater investment power and focus and will enable us to deliver a more effective and efficient services to clients,” he says. A new supervisory board and an executive has been set up. The board, chaired by Keith James, will concentrate on policy and strategy and will monitor the firm’s overall performance. The executive — responsible for developing and running the business — will report to the board and is chaired by national Managing Partner David Ansbro. The executive consists of David Ansbro; Head of Operations Colin Brown; Head of International Victor Semmens; London Managing Partner Michael Brown; and Director of Finance Gill Saunders. The announcement comes at the end of a tumultuous five days for Eversheds. Last week news of the shock resignations of two London banking partners was leaked from the firm. On Monday it announced a strategic alliance with Singaporean law firm Khattah Wong. By James Baxter
