Taylor Wessing announces new MP following Eyles’ step down
Taylor Wessing has selected its next managing partner in current co-head of international litigation Shane Gleghorn.
Gleghorn was hired the firm as a partner in 2006, when he had been working as a senior associate at Baker McKenzie. He will assume his new role on 1 October. He takes over for current managing partner Tim Eyles, who will step down from the position on 1 June upon the completion of his third term.
Eyles was elected as managing partner in 2009, just two years after joining the firm’s management board. He was re-elected unopposed twice, earning the distinction of being the only managing partner serving more than two terms.
