MAGIC Circle law firm Slaughter and May said yesterday it has chosen disputes resolution head Richard Clark as its next executive partner, stepping into Graham White’s shoes when he retires next year.

Clark will take up responsibility for the firm’s overall management strategy from 1 May 2013, having joined Slaughters 30 years ago as a trainee.

Since making partner in 1991 Clark has specialised in banking and international trade disputes, as well as fraud and global asset recovery cases.
