ABSTRACT
The article reports that Linklaters' head of corporate David Cheyne is stepping down, ostensibly to return to full-time client work. However, his eye is on the role of senior partner, replacing Anthony Cann later in 2005. Cheyne is playing his cards close to his chest, but all his corporate colleagues would be delighted to run his campaign for him. The block corporate vote at Linklaters has historically held sway, but this time round there's a new factor. The finance practice has been rejuvenated in the past five years through a mix of ferociously committed client management and some eye-catching lateral hires.
