O'Melveny chair election nears conclusion
A contested battle for the chairmanship of O'Melveny & Myers may soon end with sitting chair Arthur Culvahouse prevailing over four other candidates, reports The Recorder. The firm's election process consists of a survey of the partnership by the firm's policy committee, which then recommends a candidate to the partnership, which then votes on whether to confirm the candidate. In recent weeks, that process has failed to turn up a clear majority winner, according to a former partner and a recruiter.Both said it is likely that the policy committee will soon, possibly this week, recommend to the partnership that Culvahouse be re-elected. Such recommendations are typically ratified, and they said they expected the partnership would ratify Culvahouse, even though a majority of partners initially supported other candidates.
