Squire Patton Boggs announced Monday that Cleveland-based partner Frederick Nance will be the global firm’s next managing partner for U.S. operations, beginning Jan. 1. He will also become the first African-American partner to sit on the firm’s 12-person global board and six-person executive group.

Nance, 63, heads Squire Patton’s U.S. sports and entertainment practice, with a client roster that includes LeBron James—whom he’s represented since the basketball star was 17—and comedian Dave Chappelle. A Cleveland native, Nance has spent his entire professional life in the city, where he has been a leader in civic, cultural, and sports institutions.
