His third consecutive four-year term will commence on 1 September 2015.

"As we move forward, we are focused on smart growth and strengthening our capabilities in key markets, attracting and retaining the best talent, and building relationships with clients to support their evolving needs," he said.

Verrier has appointed three people to the firm's executive committee, which acts as the firm's global executive decision-making body.

Sao Paulo capital markets partner Donald Baker will be joined by London employment partner Oliver Brettle and New York banking partner David Koschik on the leadership team.

Elected to his first term as chair in 2007, Verrier is a project finance lawyer with more than 30 years' experience at White & Case in New York, Indonesia, Turkey and Russia.

Effective 1 September, eight newly-elected partners will join the firm's partnership committee, which Verrier chairs. They will also serve on the compensation committee and the new partners committee.

The new members are: Jochen Artzinger-Bolten (capital markets, Frankfurt); James Hayden (tax, New York); David Hille (commercial litigation, New York); Someera Khokhar (asset finance, New York); Francois Leloup (M&A, Paris); Jacquelyn MacLennan (antitrust, Brussels), Heather McDevitt (commercial litigation, New York); and Jason Yardley (commercial litigation, London).
