US law firm Reed Smith elects new Managing Partner
Reed Smith has elected Alexander ‘Sandy’ Thomas for a three-year term as its new global managing partner.
“I am deeply honored to be elected by my partners,” Thomas said. “This election fostered an exchange of ideas that was tremendously valuable to our firm, and also confirmed that we are focused on and united under a common goal to provide the highest level of service and value to our clients. We will now move forward together, as we have always done, to meet the needs of our clients around the world, and remain dedicated to the quality and experience that has made Reed Smith one of the world’s elite law firms.”
Thomas is based in the firm’s Washington, D.C., office, and he was previously the global chair of the firm's litigation department. He has been acting in the top job since October 2013, taking over from Gregory Jordan when the latter left the firm to become executive vice president and general counsel of PNC Financial Services Group Inc.
