Ashurst set to name new German chief
Ashurst is in the process of deciding on a new head of its German practice, with Simon Beddow set to return to London after four years in Frankfurt. Beddow, a private equity specialist, is set to rejoin the London office in April after extending his original term in charge of the German practice by one year. Appointed in 2005, Beddow replaced corporate partner Hermann Schlindwein as the firm moved to raise its profile in the region. Since he took the helm, the German practice, which comprises offices in Munich and Frankfurt, has grown from 55 lawyers to 110 - including 23 partners. The group has also bolstered its client roster through roles for names including US private equity house Apollo and Commerzbank, which the firm advised on its 2007 bid for Berlin-based Landesbank in 2007.
